Attendees of the the three-day conference included former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Donald Trump Jr. Sanders and a source close to Trump Jr. "said on Sunday that they did not see the video at the conference." The Times reports that the video was taken by a person who went to the conference and recorded a video on their cellphone.
