Gaetz spokesman Harlan Hill slammed CNN and said no such visit was ever requested by the congressman. “Congressman Gaetz was welcomed to Trump’s event and has not asked to meet with Trump himself., Hill said.
Jason Miller, a Trump aide, also denied the allegations.
Now Trump is putting out his own statement: “Fake News CNN, using anonymous sources, meaning they possibly made it all up, wrote a dishonest piece saying that Rep. Gaetz asked for a visit with me and that I denied him. This is not true.”
Never missing the chance to shame the media, Trump asked CNN to “investigate the Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell, who had a physical and torrid relationship with a Chinese spy, but is somehow on the House Intel Committee.”
“Swalwell, who tried to run for President with a record-breaking 0% polling, is a threat to national security and should be removed immediately., Trump said.
