Report: Trump won’t condemn his Holocaust-denying dinner because it could alienate his Jew-hating supporters

By now you’ve probably heard the news that Tuesday before Thanksgiving donald trump had a dinner date in Mar-a-Lago with two giant anti-Semites. One of these anti-Semites was the formerly well-known artist KanyeWest, now known as “Ye” and who was in the news recently for threatening to leave “Death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” with a former TMZ contributor also claiming last month that West was in an unaired Interview section previously stated that he “loved Hitler and the Nazis.” The other was Nick Fuentes, a 24 year old who The New York Times describes him as “one of the most prominent young white supremacists in the country”. Fuentes’ fiercely anti-Semitic and unabashedly racist statements are too numerous to list fully, so let’s just throw away here that he:

  • Denies that the Holocaust happened
  • Compared Jews burning in gas chambers to bake cookies
  • Attending the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where neo-Nazis chanted, “Jews will not replace us”
  • Claims that “whites are being attacked”
  • Insisted that segregation was a good thing and that black people were too sensitive to the extremely racist Jim Crow laws, saying, “Oh no, they had to go to different schools. Her water fountain in that famous picture was worse. Who cares? Grow up, drink from the damn water fountain. It’s water, it’s the same. Even [if] It was bad, who cares? We all agree it’s better for them, it’s better for us. It’s generally better.”
  • Said he was against ‘mixed marriages’
  • Declared that whites colonizing “the earth” and enslaving blacks is “epic and demonstrative of how smart and powerful we are”.
  • Lately called that the military will be sent to “those black neighborhoods.”
  • Recently, per Times, demanded “that Jews leave the country”

Unsurprisingly, Fuentes seems to be doing the same hate women and has said that we must return to “burning”. [them] Of course, at a “Stop the Steal” rally in November 2020, he urged his supporters to “storm every state capital by January 20, 2021, when President Trump is inaugurated for another four years.” On January 6 In 2021, he led a group to a rally outside the Capitol and later tweeted that the riot “was amazing and I won’t pretend it wasn’t.”

Anyway, people who aren’t hateful bigots (or fascists, or misogynists, or just generally horrible excuses for people) can understand why things weren’t looking good for a guy who’s currently hoping to win a second term as the country’s president to dine with these two men . But trump is a hateful fanatic with his own documented history of terribly racist and anti-Semitic comments. In addition, he knows that a large part of his base consists of people who love his terribly racist and anti-Semitic comment and that comment is the very reason why they previously voted for him. That’s why, in a twist that shouldn’t shock anyone, he’s been refusing to denounce one of his dining companions for nearly a week.

In a statement on Friday, he said: “Kanye West was dying to visit Mar-a-Lago. Our dinner meeting was supposed to be just for Kanye and I, but he came with a guest I had never met and knew nothing about.” Later that day, he wrote on Truth Social that West “unexpectedly met three of his Friends I didn’t know about showed up,” adding that “dinner was quick and uneventful.” That evening, trying again, he wrote that West asked him for business advice, “expressed no anti-Semitism, and I appreciated all the nice things he said about me on ‘Tucker Carlson.’ Why should I not agree to a meeting? Besides, I didn’t know Nick Fuentes.”

Trump, of course, is trying to provide some cover here, insisting Fuentes just showed up by accident and had no idea who he was. But even if we choose to think he didn’t know anything about the guy before he broke bread with him, in the days since he’s undoubtedly become fully aware of who Fuentes is and what he represents — and he still is don’t say anything even slightly critical about the guy. This was already evident from his uncritical statements, but just to get to the point, That Guardian reported Monday that Trump has “repeatedly refused to disavow Fuentes and has dismissed advice from advisers over fears he may alienate part of his base,” according to two people familiar with the matter. According to the outlet, advisers had reached out to him over Thanksgiving, but Trump “ultimately made it clear that he didn’t want to criticize Fuentes as a matter of principle … and the more he was pushed, the more solidified his stubbornness.”

Trump’s 2024 campaign responded The guard‘s request for comment, insisting the ex-president has a strong record of fighting anti-Semitism and strengthening US ties with Israel. There was no mention of how he recently ranted about Jews having to “get their acts together… before it’s too late,” or how he reportedly told his chief of staff that “Hitler did many good things,” or how he shamefully said Bei a rally in which neo-Nazis also took part, there were “very good people on both sides”. Among many other things.
