Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “McConnell Won't Say If He'll Back Trump 2024 Bid After White Nationalist Meeting”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday did not directly respond when asked if he would support Donald Trump should he win the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.

Speaking at a weekly press conference on Capitol Hill, McConnell said there is “simply no room in the Republican Party for antisemitism or white supremacy.” The remark came in the wake of the former president’s meeting with white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.

He then offered a political prediction: “Anyone” who gathers with white nationalists is “highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States.”

But that’s as far as the top Senate Republican was willing to go. He did not rule out supporting Trump in the future. He didn’t call on Trump to apologize for last week’s meeting, as former Vice President Mike Pence has done. And he didn’t demand that Trump denounce Fuentes, something the former president has yet to do.
