Default cannot bleed air out of power steering system

I just installed a new power steering pump and both the pressure and return lines. Out of the two different methods I've seen to bleed the system of air and flush the system I used this method. I connected both lines to the steering gear then filled the reservoir with new fluid and pumped out the old fluid from the reservoir not letting it run dry and repeated this until I got the old fluid out. Now this is a very simple procedure but when I look down into the reservoir it's milky white because of all the air bubbles. Why?
