Trump aide Stephen Miller doubled down on baseless claims of widespread voter fraud

UPDATE 10:47 a.m.: Trump seemed pleased with Miller's work.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Stephen Miller, a senior policy advisor to President Trump, doubled down on Trump's baseless claims of widespread voter fraud in talk show interviews Sunday morning.

Miller was asked about a number of other policy issues and North Korea's recent missile test. When asked on ABC News' "This Week"  if the test crossed Trump's "red line," Miller deflected, echoing Trump's statement that the U.S. "stands behind its allies."

The "This Week" interview ended with a heated exchange between Miller and host George Stephanopoulos about voter fraud. Trump has repeatedly said without evidence that millions of illegal votes cost him the popular vote. Miller said there was large amounts of evidence available, and talking to local politicians would back up his claims.

He did not present any of that evidence.  He cited studies into voter records, but their creators have said repeatedly they did not show evidence of voter fraud.

Stephanopoulos ended the interview with a curt, "Thanks for joining us."

Miller also said the judiciary branch was "not supreme," referencing Trump's travel ban.

He hinted that a new executive order to advance the travel ban would be filed.

Miller also said the Mexican border wall would "pay for itself."

And he defended embattled White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
