A document spotted on a table near the entrance to the Republican debate “spin room” at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee instructs security to be on the lookout for a number of individuals, including members of former President Donald Trump’s staff, who are barred from entry.
The document, which was pictured by NBC News reporter Dasha Burns, lists Trump staffers Jason Miller, Justin Caparole and Danny Tiso as being barred from the debate. Members of the Larry Elder campaign and individuals holding a Vivek Ramaswamy “1776 moment” pass are also listed on the no entry list.
The document was complete with photos of Miller, Caparole and Tiso and instructs staff to not answer any questions from the press. “If you see something, say something,” read bold print instructions pertaining to the blacklisted individuals.

The Trump campaign had applied earlier in the week to have a number of surrogates — including Kari Lake, Donald Trump Jr. and others — attend the debate. These requests were denied by Fox News, who is hosting the debate, however.
As for the former president, he instead opted to sit down for an exclusive interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson at his Bedminster golf course in New Jersey. The interview is set to air at 8:55 ET on X, presenting a massive ratings conflict for the debate, which is scheduled to begin just five minutes
