The White House strongly denounced former President Donald Trump’s dinner at Mar-a-Lago last week with notorious racist and antisemite Nick Fuentes and Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, whose antisemitic tweets were recently blocked on Twitter.
The Mar-a-Lago dinner blew up in Trump’s face less than two weeks after he declared that he was running for president.
The dinner was first revealed in a video posted last Friday by Ye, who claimed he asked Trump to be his vice president, and that the former president “screamed” at him.
The former president has claimed on Truth Social that he had no idea who Fuentes was when he accompanied Ye to dinner last Tuesday.
Chris Christie (R) told the New York Times Friday that Trump’s dinner makes him an “untenable” candidate for president.
Matt Brooks, chief executive of the Republican Jewish Coalition, issued a statement Friday, without naming Trump, saying: “We strongly condemn the virulent antisemitism of Kanye West and Nick Fuentes, and call on all political leaders to reject their messages of hate and refuse to meet with them.”?
