The White House was reportedly caught off guard last week when the Trump campaign backed a plan to give the government a role in managing next-generation wireless technology, known as 5G, in the U.S.

Axios reported Sunday that there was “widespread confusion” inside the Trump administration as well as “mass uncertainty” after the Trump campaign appeared to back the proposal.

“Lots of policy folks were caught off guard,” a senior Trump administration official told Axios. 

The confusion came after Politico reported Friday that the Trump campaign was supporting the plan to allow the government to control 5G airwaves and lease access to private wireless providers. 

“A 5G wholesale market would drive down costs and provide access to millions of Americans who are currently underserved.

But Axios reported Sunday that the campaign is now walking back its position. McEnany told Axios that the White House “sets the policy on 5G” and that there is “no daylight between the White House and the campaign.” “The White House sets the policy on 5G and all issues,” McEnany said. “Naturally, the campaign fully supports the President’s priorities and his policy agenda. There is no daylight between the White House and the campaign.”
