Sanwar Ali comment:

Stephen Miller despite being Jewish has been accused of being a white supremacist.   There have been numerous calls for his resignation including from Jewish groups.  Following his recent marriage, there is a fake comedy wedding registry site “Partners in Crimes Against Humanity”:

…It only took a few minutes for us to realize our shared passion of our right to absolute superiority based on nothing but the color of our skin…

…Since that day, unlike migrant families at the border, we became inseparable…

Even Dr David Glosser, Stephen Miller’s uncle has made a donation to the fake wedding registry.  The registry was created by news and comedy programme Full Frontal with Samantha Bee which supports:

"organisations that help the most vulnerable among us, people whose rights are receding faster than Stephen's hairline".

President Donald Trump attended the wedding of senior adviser Stephen Miller and Katie Waldman at the Trump international hotel on Sunday, February 16.

Miller, who has been widely condemned for his links to white nationalism and his hardline US immigration stance, wed Ms Waldman, who is press secretary for vice president Mike Pence, in a low-key ceremony.

Trump, along with first lady Melania, raced from the Daytona 500 to attend the Miller-Waldman wedding, which was officiated by Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone, senior adviser to US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.

Current and former White House staff in attendance

A number of senior Trump administration officials and former White House staff were at the event, including ex-chief of staff Reince Priebus and his wife Sally. Priebus, who is also the former Republican National Committee chairman, posted a picture on Twitter of himself accompanied by his wife and the newlyweds alongside a congratulatory message.

The tweet said: “Spectacular and very special wedding tonight with new bride and groom Stephen and Katie Miller! So much fun and still going with @realDonaldTrump having fun and the band is going strong!

Trump jokes about wedding timing

According to a reporter for Real Clear Politics, President Trump made a speech jovially mocking Miller for choosing to wed during the Presidents’ Day weekend, which is a public holiday in the US.

Trump said: “He [Miller] is the only one who could have a damn wedding in the middle of Presidents’ Day weekend. I’m sure it didn’t affect anybody here.”

The President also joked that he didn’t think he could miss the Miller-Waldman wedding without upsetting the bride. He quipped: “I think Steve [Miller] would understand. I don’t think Katie would. But that’s okay.”

Trump and the first lady remained at the wedding for around two hours, with the press made to wait outside the hotel.

Waldman a former spokeswoman for ex-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen

28-year-old Waldman, now the new Mrs Miller, was formerly the spokeswoman for ex-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who resigned because of Trump’s hardline US immigration policies.

Miller, 34, has worked under Trump since joining his 2016 presidential campaign. He is the chief architect of current US immigration policy and is the man behind hardline approaches such as the separation of families at the US southern border with Mexico, the indefinite detention of migrant families and releasing migrants into sanctuary cities.

The newly married Miller is also rumoured to be responsible for Trump’s push to end birth right citizenship, which prevents babies born on US soil to non-US citizens from automatically being granted citizenship in the USA, and the highly controversial Muslim travel ban, which was recently expanded.

Miller shrouded in controversy

Since joining the Trump administration, Miller has been shrouded in controversy, recently hitting the headlines for promoting white nationalist articles and racist books, which were exposed through a series of leaked emails.

Earlier this month, Democratic congressional leaders called for Miller to resign, saying: “His [Miller’s] white supremacist, anti-immigrant ideology has no place in our country.

“Miller should leave his job for trafficking in bigotry, hatred and divisive political rhetoric and for promoting policies that are inconsistent with the trust and confidence placed in him as a senior advisor to the president.”

Miller and Waldman were introduced in the spring of 2018 and engaged in November 2019.
