The tweet comes after a report from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) revealed that Miller shared white nationalist content with right-wing news website Breitbart and worked to guide the outlet’s coverage.
Hatewatch, a branch of the SPLC, reviewed more than 900 emails Miller sent to former Breitbart editor Katie McHugh between 2015 and 2016, finding that more than 80 percent of the emails were about race or immigration.
Among other things, Hatewatch said Miller shared content from white nationalist sites directly with McHugh to provide information for her reporting and sought to “create a narrative” regarding the removal of the Confederate flag after a shooting at an African American church in Charleston, S.C.
The White House dismissed the report, saying that the SPLC “is an utterly-discredited, long-debunked far-left smear organization” and is “beneath public discussion.”

Miller has been a top target for Democrats over his involvement in some of the Trump administration's hard-line immigration stances, including its now-scrapped “zero tolerance policy” that led to a spike in family separations at the border.
