In this photo, Gaetz speaks during the “Save America Summit” at the Trump National Doral golf resort on April 09, 2021 in Doral, Florida. Mr. Gaetz addressed the summit hosted by Women for America First as the Justice Department is investigating the Congressman for allegations of sex with a minor and child sex trafficking.

Matt Gaetz has refuted claims he was denied a meeting with former President Donald Trump as he continues to fight for his future in politics.

The embattled Florida Congressman responded to a CNN report on Sunday that said he had wanted to meet Trump at Mar-a-Lago.

CNN said the intervention made by Trump’s aides “signals that Gaetz finds himself increasingly isolated as he weathers a potentially career-ending scandal.”

But Gaetz, a vocal supporter of the former president, has fervently denied on social media that Trump had not wanted to see him.

In a tweet, responding to the claims, Gaetz said: “This is a total lie. I am on a pre-planned vacation with my fiancée.”

He continued: “I was welcomed at Trump Doral days ago. No such meeting was denied nor sought. Gabby, ‘unnamed sources’ lied. When can we expect a retraction?”
