“We are sending you a proposal for a debate that will be in your inbox at 10 a.m.,” one of them told the Trump senior leadership, Susie Wiles, Chris LaCivita and Tony Fabrizio, in a call, before rattling off the terms of a June 27 meeting in Atlanta, according to a person familiar with the conversation.
