President Trump has responded to a CNN interview with White House adviser Stephen Miller that has gone viral.
In a tweet sent on Sunday morning, the President said "Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"

Tapper and Miller went head-to-head during an interview on Sunday that ended abruptly after Tapper cut Miller off.
The pair were discussing President Trump's tweets in which he called himself a 'genius.'
The CNN host asked Miller if he believed Trump's tweets help or hurt the cause that the President is stable enough for the job. Miller replied that the President is helped by his tweets and called out CNN for various incorrect stories the network has reported over the course of President Trump's time in office.
"It was a huge embarrassment for your network," Miller said. "The President's tweets absolutely reaffirm the plain spoken truth. A self-made billionaire, revolutionized reality TV, and tapped into something magical that's happening in the hearts of this country."
Tapper responded by saying the President has approval ratings in the 30's. According to FiveThirtyEight, which averages approval ratings for various polls, President Trump's approval rating is at 38.8 percent.
Miller continued saying, "The people who you don't connect with or understand. The people whose manufacturing jobs have left, the people who've been besieged by high-crime communities, and who've been affected by a policy of uncontrolled immigration. Those voices and those experiences don't get covered on this network."
The White House adviser accused Tapper of not asking any questions about the issues he was booked to talk about, which Tapper denied.
"You not answering the questions," Tapper said. "You have one viewer you care about right now....I think you've wasted enough of our viewers' time."
Earlier in the morning, Trump also continued to complain about Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury," which delves into the inner workings of Trump's White House. He called Wolff a "totally discredited author" and compared himself to Ronald Reagan.
I’ve had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. So will I!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 7, 2018
