Fox News reportedly contacted its security team to block Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Kimberly Guilfoyle from the Republican presidential debate's post-debate spin room on Wednesday.
Video has emerged showing Trump Jr. and his wife blocked by security personnel from entering the area.

“Fox News is trying to censor and silence Trump supporters to protect their hand-picked establishment candidates,” Trump Jr., tweeted.
“That’s a big reason why their ratings are dying, while my father’s interview with Tucker Carlson is already at 93 million views!!!” he said.

"Eight Republican candidates participated in the debate, which ran for roughly two hours and was moderated by Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier and 'The Story' host Martha MacCallum," the New York Post reported.
"Trump, 77, opted out of the first GOP primary debate and instead sat down with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson for an interview that aired on X, formerly known as Twitter, during the first half of the event," it added.
Trump Jr. has continued to support his father's campaign despite a growing number of legal challenges facing the former president.
On Thursday, Trump turned himself in at the Fulton County jail following charges of election interference after the 2020 election.
The indictment follows others in Washington and Florida that have sought to discredit the former president as he seeks a return to the White House.
So far, Trump has also faced challenges with Fox News, including his latest issue with his son being blocked during the debate.
