News, Potential Trump 2024 Challengers Weigh in on His Dinner Meeting With Avowed Anti-Semite: detailed suggestions and opinions about Potential Trump 2024 Challengers Weigh in on His Dinner Meeting With Avowed Anti-Semite.
They did not mince words.
On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, former president Donald Trump hosted the rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and avowed anti-Semite Nick Fuentes for dinner.
It’s unclear what the main course was, but the dessert was heaps of condemnation—from both Republicans and Democrats who are considering challenging Trump in 2024.
Fuentes has denied the Holocaust occurred and has repeatedly characterized white people as “under attack.” He attended the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally that culminated in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer was present on the US Capitol grounds in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021.
Ye has lost partnerships with Adidas and the Gap for racist and anti-Semitic behavior in recent weeks, such as wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt, baselessly promoting the conspiracy that Jewish people control the world’s financial systems, and even directly threatening Jewish people. “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 [sic] on JEWISH PEOPLE,” he wrote in an October 8 tweet. (It was seemingly a misspelling of DEAFCON III, which is an alert state used by the US military to signal higher-than-normal readiness for corresponding threat levels.)
Yet on November 22, Trump—who recently announced a 2024 presidential bid—hosted both of Fuentes and Ye—who has also announced he’s running in 2024—at Mar-a-Lago.
Here’s what prominent Republicans and Democrats, who have all speculated about running for president in 2024, have said about it:
Anti-Semitism is a cancer. As Secretary, I fought to ban funding for anti-Semitic groups that pushed BDS.
We stand with the Jewish people in the fight against the world’s oldest bigotry.

The former New Jersey governor and Trump fan was the first major 2016 Republican candidate for president to drop out and endorse Trump in 2016, but that allegiance is long gone.
