Stephen Miller could take on a WH communications role

Trump Dictated Son's Russia Meeting Statement Report

But they acknowledged that the 31-year-old aide is a candidate to take on the message-shaping responsibilities that usually fall to the communications director, a post that has been vacated since Anthony Scaramucci was sacked last week after a tumultuous 10-day stint in the position.

The White House officials cautioned that conversations about Miller's role are ongoing and no final decisions have been made.

One week after the controversial 10-day tenure of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci came to a dramatic end, officials in the Trump administration are floating the possibility that senior policy advisor Stephen Miller could get his job, Axios reports.

Former chief of staff Reince Priebus - who was the center of Scaramucci's tirade in his now infamous The New Yorker interview - was also removed by Trump three days before "the Mooch" was sacked.

We can only wish him well and hope he helps the president become a true chief executive of our great country.

Pakistan wants good relations with India: Foreign Minister
He said the armed forces must be accredited for the successful curbing of violence and terror attacks across the country. The foreign minister said ties between Pakistan and India could improve with "one-sided efforts" of Pakistan.

Unlike Reince Preibus who was more politician than administrator, and was therefore doomed to fail, Secretary Kelly does not look like the type who will try to please anyone and everyone that heads for the Oval Office.

"He had no plans to resign before that", a person who talked to Scaramucci on Monday morning said. However, Kelly felt that Scaramucci had lost credibility and was not disciplined enough to continue on in his role with the administration.

Sean Spicer also announced his resignation as White House press secretary on July 21, reportedly because he didn't approve of Scaramucci's appointment. This may not sit well with those who consider themselves so close to Mr. Trump as to be his virtual alter ego like strategist Steve Bannon, son-in-law Jared Kushner, or even oldest son and namesake Donald Trump Jr.

According to the newspaper, Miller, who now acts as Trump's chief speechwriter, is being promoted by his allies as a candidate who understands Trump and the White House's agenda and would therefore be effective at communicating this to the media and public. It then went back to Spicer and then to Scaramucci. "You know I can't do that", Lizza said.
