Donald Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, deflected a question this morning on whether Roger Ailes’ advising Trump on debate prep is inappropriate in light of the sexual harassment allegations made against the former Fox News chairman.
"I'm at Trump Tower every day," Conway said on "Good Morning America.” "I've never seen Mr. Ailes there. I saw him one time for lunch recently."
When asked whether Ailes is still providing Trump with debate advice, Conway said she doesn't know.
"I don't know because Mr. Trump speaks to many people on the phone when I'm not there," Conway said. "They've known each other probably for 30 years I would think, pre-FOX News and pre-presidential politics."
The company, 21st Century Fox, settled the sexual harassment lawsuit with former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson for $20 million. Ailes left the network July 21 and has denied the allegations made against him.
