The battle between the Donald Trump administration and the mainstream media doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. After the president revealed his latest attempt at immigration reform, a top member of the White House clashed with a big name reporter.

White House clash

It all started back in June 2015 when Donald Trump stood on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City with his family by his side and announced his plan to run for president. During his speech, the former host of "The Apprentice" addressed illegal immigration, while claiming that the majority of those entering the country illegally from Mexico were "rapists" and "murderers." Trump's rhetoric quickly resulted in a partisan divide in the country, with those on the political left calling him out for apparent racism, while others cheered on the billionaire real estate mogul.

After seven months in office, little to no progress has been made on the issue, leading to the White House releasing what is known as the "RAISE ACT." The new proposal aims to cut legal migration into the country by prioritizing those who already speak English and who have financial means to support themselves and their families. As reported by C-SPAN on August 2, Senior White House Adviser stephen miller clashed with Glenn Thursh of the New York Times over the issue at hand.

During Wednesday's press briefing at the White House, Stephen Miller took questions about the aforementioned "RAISE ACT" before becoming visibly irritated with the line of questioning coming from the New York Times. "There's been a lot of studies that don't show correlation between low-skill immigration and the loss of jobs for workers," Glenn Thursh said, before pressing Miller on providing statistics to back up their proposal.

As expected, Stephen Miller was quick to push back, getting into a near shouting match with Glenn Thrush. "Maybe we'll make a carve-out in the bill that says The New York Times can hire all the low-skilled, less-paid worker they want from other countries and see how you feel then about low-wage substitution," Miller said.

Both sides went back and forth, highlighting the wide gap and divide between the administration and the press.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump and his team continue to argue with the media and reporters, the president has many other issues on his plate. From the growing Russian scandal, to the questions that remain around health care and the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Trump is struggling to get the job done and is sitting on just a 35 percent approval rating for his efforts.
