A CBS News reporter on Monday tweeted a transcript of the conversation between Stephen Miller, a top White House aide, and Jake Tapper, a CNN host, following their heated interview on Sunday.

During a Monday interview on the widely talked-about segment, MSNBC panelists agreed that the Trump administration's decision to send a high-ranking official like Miller onto CNN after not providing anyone to the network for weeks was completely intentional.

Miller spent much of the interview slamming Fire & Fury: Inside The Trump White House, the new book by journalist Michael Wolff, which features critical remarks on Trump from former White House adviser Steve Bannon. According to the source, Miller was politely asked to leave the set multiple times after the interview was over, but refused. "After refusing to leave, he was escorted out by security", a CNN source told CBS News.

"Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!" he added.

"I think I have wasted enough of my viewers' time", Tapper told Miller as he abruptly ended the aide's air-time.

Stephen Miller, senior advisor for policy to US President Donald Trump's is seen in a hallway at the United Nations as President Donald J. Trump addresses the audience during the opening of the General Debate of the 72nd United Nations General Assembly at at UN headquarters in New York, New York, USA, 19 September 2017.

Mr. Trump returned home to the White House on Sunday morning following a retreat to Camp David with GOP congressional leaders.

He compared questions of his mental fitness, raised by Wolff's book, to that of President Ronald Reagan, who had suffered from Alzheimer's disease toward the end of his presidency. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well.

The White House is still trying to douse the flames caused by the new expose about life in the Trump administration.

"I'm always amazed at the lengths people will go to, to lie for money and for power".

Despite having "no knowledge" of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff's book are "a pure work of fiction" and "nothing but a pile of trash through and through".

"And responding to Trump's Twitter claim that he is a "very stable genius, ' Miller stood by his man, repeatedly asserting that the president speaks the truth. This is about human nature".
