An adviser and spokesman for former President Donald Trump called on CNN to retract a story that claimed—citing anonymous sources—that embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) attempted to meet with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, but was stopped by the former commander-in-chief’s aides.

“This @CNN story is complete fake news,” Trump adviser Jason Miller wrote on Twitter. “No such scheduling or meeting request was ever made, and therefore, it could never have been declined. Take note that this story has zero on-the-record sources. It’s literally made-up. We are demanding a full retraction.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The CNN report, like many stories published during the Trump era, cited “people familiar with the matter.” The report claimed Gaetz, who is reportedly facing a federal investigation for sex trafficking, attempted to visit with Trump in recent days but was rebuffed by Trump’s aides. Going a step further, the article claimed the incident “signals that Gaetz finds himself increasingly isolated” from Trump and other Republicans.

Rep. Gaetz also spoke out against the report, referring to it as a ‘total lie.’

“This is a total lie. I am on a pre-planned vacation with my fiancée. I was welcomed at Trump Doral days ago,” Gaetz tweeted. “No such meeting was denied nor sought … When can we expect a retraction?”

This is not the first time CNN reported a breaking news story about Gaetz by citing unnamed sources.

On April 1, CNN reported that Gaetz allegedly showed off photos and videos to other lawmakers of nude women he said he had slept with, based on anonymous sources. The Florida representative denied the allegation.

The New York Times also reported that Gaetz once asked Trump White House aides for a preemptive pardon at the end of his term, which both Gaetz and Trump have firmly denied.

  1. I’m curious when CNN will grow a spine and have actual evidence and sources before putting out a story. CNN defines misinformation.
