Ahead of Wednesday’s first Republican primary debate of the year, Rep Matt Gaetz revealed that Trump surrogates would in fact be allowed to observe the debate and have access to the spin room.
Newsmax host Chris Salcedo said, "Now we’re learning Fox News, the never Trump network, won’t allow Trump surrogates to attend the debate and the spin room after the debate," adding that this was "completely unprecedented."
Gaetz clarified that "the RNC gave control over the spin room to Fox News, we were allowed to go and observe the debate but there was a little bit of confusion I can tell you now that’s all been sorted out."
"We are going to have the Trump team in full force at this debate, we are going to have access to the spin room, we’re going to be there to observe the debate and I can’t wait to be giving my hot takes on Newsmax afterward and share with you my perspective on how it went."
The first RNC debate of the election cycle will take place on Wednesday evening in Milwaukee but will be missing the consistently top-polling candidate Trump.
