Fox News has restricted former President Donald Trump’s surrogates from attending the Republican Party primary debate in Milwaukee on Wednesday after the former president announced his absence over the weekend.
According to a Fox News memo acquired by Axios, the network notified the Trump campaign on Monday that access to the debate “spin room,” where prominent supporters of candidates laud the person they are supporting and attack adversaries, would henceforth be limited to “participating candidate/campaigns.”
Other campaigns that did not qualify would likewise be barred from using surrogates on the network.
The 77-year-old former president stated over the weekend that the findings of a CBS News GOP primary survey demonstrated the primary was over and that he didn’t need to debate, despite the fact that a significant poll in Iowa released this week indicated that the race may be considerably tighter in the critical primary state.
“I WILL THEREFORE NOT BE DOING THE DEBATES!” Trump stated on social media on Sunday evening.
Instead, the former president conducted an interview with former Fox News personality Tucker Carlson, which will be aired on social media around the time of the debate.
The CBS News survey Trump referenced to excuse his absence from the debate contained a question for “likely Republican primary voters” about Trump attending the debate.
“Do you think Donald Trump should or should not participate in the Republican debate?” the poll asked.
In response, 73% said that he “should” show up to the debate, while just 27% said that he “should not.”
“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy suggested this week that Trump may be helping President Joe Biden by skipping the debates, arguing that by doing so he opened the door for Biden to skip debating Trump if Trump becomes the Republican Party nominee.
Doocy said, “Unfortunately, by skipping the debates, Donald Trump may actually be helping Joe Biden because he’s giving Joe Biden an excuse for not debating Donald Trump.”
“That’s one of the things that Ronna McDaniel told the former president when she was trying to get him to do the first debate,” he continued. “But he said, nope, not going to do it.”
Doocy explained that “if Donald Trump says, ‘everybody knows me, I don’t need to do it’, then Joe Biden goes, ‘everybody knows me, I’m president’.”
It will be interesting to see President Trump’s polling numbers after the first debate. If he loses ground, will he change course and participate in future debates or stick to his decision not to participate?
Tell me in the comments below!
Who else is sick and tired of the woke agenda being shoved down our throats daily?
You know what makes it even worse is that we are funding it with our dollars.
Yep, and it stinks.
Every day we are fighting the culture war that is destroying our nation and when we go to the store we are funding it with our dollars.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way and I am so excited to find alternatives.
The only “catch”?
It’s Invite only.
Good thing you know someone that has the invites….(me!).
Yep! I would not make a suggestion if I wasn’t going to hook you up.
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here and tell them SASSY sent you: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx
It’s the real deal for sure, and since it is invite only and does not run like other corrupt conglomerates they may have the SHUT OFF invites if they grow too fast.
We need to stop sending our dollars to the corporations that hate us and want to see us gone!
Remember the Georgia Guidestones?
They literally told us they wanted to reduce us from 8 billion people on Earth down to only 500 million.
No big deal, right?
Just an elimination of 94% of all people living right now.
And yet we continue to shop at their big stores and send them our money because until now we’ve had little choice.
Well, today that changes.
It’s time to “ditch and switch” and change where you send your dollars each month.
What if I told you instead of sending your money to Jeff Bezos and Costco and Walmart, you could shop at the LAST pro-America, freedom-loving, American designer, manufacturer, and shipper of all the stuff you buy each month?
Oh, and what if I told you the products are BETTER and often CHEAPER?
Yes, for real.
And what if I told you this is the best-kept secret you’ve never heard of before, but that this company has been doing this for the last 37 years?
And their founder was once placed on Barack Hussein Obama’s list of the Top 10 most “Dangerous Conservatives” in America?
(a list I one day hope to make myself!)
All of that is real and I’m so excited to tell you about it and I hope you’ll join the MISSION with me.
Here’s a quick summary of this company that I’m so excited to now be partnered up with on this mission:
Sound good to anyone else?
I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.
They only want people on the same mission to join and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!
They’ve been doing it for 37 years, and it works great.
Oh, and did I mention the products are non-toxic and don’t have all the chemicals and crap like Red Dye 40 that all the Big Corporations put in their products to weaken you?
To wear you down?
To make you — and your family — sick?
Because then when you get sick you’ll buy their drugs!
Sorry folks, I don’t play that game and neither does my family.
We’re talking about the LAST all-natural, grass-fed, no-hormal, massive beef cattle ranch in the United States….
We’re talking fluoride-free toothpaste, chemical-free cleaners, and Deet-free mosquito repellant!
What novel concepts, right?
Stop sending your money to these 11 corporations that do NOT have your best interest at heart:
It’s an ILLUSION of choice.
There’s only one pro-American, American-made and manufactured, chemical-free, toxin-free, hormone-free, company left….and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!
As I said, it’s Invite Only and the invite is entirely free!
In fact, I’ve assembled a team of patriots who will personally get you invited and signed up….if you want in.
Folks, we don’t have many strongholds left.
This is one.
And I’m all in.

Tell them Sassy sent you and I promise you will get a personal call or text. If you want an email make sure you use one where one of the team members can get in touch with you.
Don’t freak out when you do.
And make sure you tell them you are interested in the Black Angus beef!
I know I tend to get concerned when I get messages from numbers I don’t recognize, but if you request a Free Invite (Link here: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx you WILL have someone from my Inner Circle reach out to you….so be ready!
These are awesome people and I think you’ll love getting a chance to talk with them.

They are patriots just like you!
