Hatred has “no place in America,” the White House declared on Saturday, criticizing the former president for having dinner with white nationalist Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago this week, Fox News informed.
Bigotry, racism, and antisemitism, according to a statement from White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates, have no place in America, particularly at Mar-a-Lago.
Holocaust denial must be vehemently rejected because it is disgusting and dangerous.
After it was revealed that Trump had Ye, formerly known as Kane West, at his exclusive club on Tuesday and that Fuentes, a political journalist with a history of making racist remarks and denial of the Holocaust, had also been present, the White House responded.
After receiving immediate criticism from all sides of the political spectrum for hosting Fuentes, Trump released a statement separating himself from the analyst. It occurs shortly after Trump declared his intention to run for president in 2024. Ye has also declared his own ambition for 2024.
Trump claimed in comments made on TRUTH Social that he was unaware of Fuentes and that the dinner intended to talk business and politics with Ye, who had also come under fire for antisemitic sentiments.
Trump claimed that Kanye West phoned him last week and asked to have dinner at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump added, that shortly after, Ye unexpectedly arrived up with three of his friends that Trump didn’t know nothing about.
On Tuesday night, they served dinner on the back patio with several of members in attendance. Dinner went by quickly and without incident. Once at the airport, they departed.
Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was seeking Trump’s counsel over a number of his problems, including those relating to his business, according to Trump’s second statement. Trump also claimed that they spoke briefly about politics during which he advised him against seeking the presidency and advised any potential supporters to choose TRUMP.
On Saturday, a Trump adviser emphasized Trump’s track record of supporting Israel and combating antisemitism while in the White House.
Last week, Trump attacked the Biden administration for purportedly wasting that work, calling himself “the greatest friend Israel has ever had in the White House.”
In a video he posted earlier this week, Ye claimed that Trump was “very impressed” by Fuentes, whom he referred to as a “loyalist,” and that the musician surprised Trump by inviting him to serve as his vice president.
