In a recent interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” former senior advisor to President Donald Trump, Stephen Miller, delivered a passionate message to his fellow Republicans. Miller addressed the mounting tensions within the GOP, particularly the plan by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to oust Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), a move that has caused ripples within Republican circles.

Miller began by acknowledging the emotions at play within the party, recognizing that disagreements exist. However, he emphasized the urgent need for unity, stressing that the very essence of the nation is at stake.
I think, at this point in time, it’s very clear that Kevin is not going to be going anywhere. He has the support of 218 members,” the former Trump advisor stated, urging his fellow Republicans to rise above personal disputes for the greater good of the country.
The rift between Gaetz and McCarthy stemmed from McCarthy’s proposal for a continuing resolution that aimed to keep the government open. This proposal included spending cuts and funding for border security, a point of contention for Gaetz and a few other Republicans.
Miller acknowledged the need for compromise, a common element in politics.
“I understand all the emotions that are playing out right now. But, for the love of God, we are losing this country, and we are losing it fast. Republicans need to unify around the twin mission of stopping the open border invasion and stopping a government that has been weaponized against conservatives and Christians and anyone who does not subscribe to the tenets of the radical left,” he stated.
“That means you’re going to have to agree to spending levels you might not like, but to get the policy that you want,” he explained.
As part of the strategy, Miller urged Republicans to garner the support of Senate Republicans. “We need 40 Republicans to stand up and say no to open borders, no to weaponized government,” he asserted.
He also called for pressure on Democrats, particularly those in vulnerable positions. By making them understand the consequences of not cooperating, Miller believes they can be compelled to align with Republican objectives.
