It was reported earlier this week that President Donald Trump wrote his inauguration speech himself, with CNN stating that two Trump transition officials told them he had written the draft. 

The report further noted that the president told historian Douglas Brinkley last month that he was writing the address.

Trump would even post an image on social media of him purportedly working on the speech while at Mar-a-Lago weeks ago.


Now according to a White House official, it seems that much of the speech was actually written by two Trump advisers Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller.

The White House officialy confirmed today that most of the speech was actually written by Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon.

"I don’t think we’ve had a speech like that since Andrew Jackson came to the White House," said Mr. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. "It’s got a deep, deep root of patriotism."
