Miller was lauded by White House staffers after he blasted CNN reporter Jim Acosta for his "cosmopolitan" views on immigration.

During an appearance on Fox News' MediaBuzz, one-time Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson revealed her immediate reaction to the much-discussed confrontation.

Still, the officials said Trump confidants have privately envisioned a revamped White House communications operation where Miller would have a heavy hand in building media plans for policy proposals and in shaping the White House's rapid response.

Axios first reported the possibility of Miller taking on a leadership role with regard to White House communications. I got off the phone and just kind of stood there, silently.

During the press conference, he told reporters the poem written by Emma Lazarus about the "huddled masses", which is on a plaque on the Statue of Liberty and which has become a national symbol for the country's embrace of immigrants, is not part of the original statue.

Anthony Scaramucci was sacked from his position as White House communications director just days into the job after he launched a searing foul-mouthed attack on his most senior colleagues, describing one as a "paranoid schizophrenic".

"Reince is a f***ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", Scaramucci was quoted as saying in an expletive-filled tirade in which he accused the chief of staff of damaging information leaks.

Sean Spicer also announced his resignation as White House press secretary on July 21, reportedly because he didn't approve of Scaramucci's appointment.
