Immigration hawk Stephen Miller, who will serve as President-elect Donald Trump’s senior policy advisor, has been tapped to write Trump’s inaugural address, Politico reports.

Miller, a former aide to Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, joined Trump’s campaign in January and helped craft many of the president-elect’s speeches, including his address at the July Republican convention. Miller is known as an immigration hawk and a detractor of current trade policies. After Miller was named Trump’s senior policy advisor, conservative author Ann Coulter told The Daily Caller, “We’re one step closer to my dream of having Stephen Miller run the country.”

Politico reports that the inaugural address will attempt to try to unite Americans by framing Trump’s agenda as nationalistic rather than ideological. The report says that the areas in which Trump will call for Americans to unite around are education, infrastructure, military and economic strength, border security, and outsourcing of jobs.

Trump spoke about similar themes during the RNC speech that Miller wrote. Trump declared, “I am your voice,” during that address and promised that “law and order” will return during his administration.
