Ruth Glosser, Stephen Miller’s grandmother, died of COVID-19 on July 4, said her son, Miller’s uncle.
David Glosser told Mother Jones he is “angry and outraged at [Miller] directly and the administration he has devoted his energy to supporting.”
Glosser, a retired neuropsychologist, has been a vocal Trump critic, targeting his immigration policies in particular.
The White House responded by calling Glosser’s claims “categorically false” and saying Miller’s grandmother “did not pass away from COVID.”
Glosser’s death certificate says otherwise — it lists her cause of death as “respiratory arrest” resulting from “COVID-19.”
Miller helped President Trump write the March 11 Oval Office address that called the coronavirus a “foreign virus” and praised his administration’s response.
Glosser has accused Miller of being “the architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our family’s life.”
