Several GOP leaders, including some potential 2024 rivals, are explicitly condemning embattled former President Donald Trump for meeting with Nick Fuentes, who is widely known as a white supremacist and anti-Semite.
Former Vice President Mike Pence, who is eyeing a 2024 run, called on Trump to apologize for his actions. Even though Pence and Trump have a virtually non-existent relationship following January 6, Pence has sparingly criticized the former president.
"President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an anti-Semite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table. And I think he should apologize for it," Pence told News Nation host Leland Vittert on Monday.
Trump has claimed that he has no idea who Fuentes was. He has claimed that he tried to give advice to the rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, who was also at the dinner. Ye has made a number of antisemitic comments in recent months, which led multiple companies, including Adidas, to break ties with him. The trio had dinner at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort last week.
"Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was asking me for advice concerning some of his difficulties, in particular having to do with his business. We also discussed, to a lesser extent, politics, where I told him he should definitely not run for President ...," Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social. Trump added that West "expressed no anti-Semitism" during the dinner.
