Miller became angry, replying that the sonnet on the Statue of Liberty was “added later” and therefore, does not reflect American values towards immigrants. While the argument surprised many observers, it is a popular refrain among white nationalists. Miller’s comments were greeted enthusiastically by white nationalists on Twitter. David Duke, a vocal Trump supporter and former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan has devoted an entire chapter in one of his books to Emma Lazarus, the author of the poem, and the Statue of Liberty. Duke says Lazarus was “anxious to turn America into a refuge for the castoffs of the world.” It was also a point made in January by white nationalist Richard Spencer. notmypresident impeachtrump dumptrump lockhimup ivanka jaredkushner treason traitor racist racism maga republican gop nevertrump
