Donald Trump confirmed that he had dinner with a Holocaust-denying white supremacist in what is the latest major headache for the GOP.
Former President Donald Trump hosted white nationalist and antisemite Nick Fuentes at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach on Tuesday night, according to multiple people familiar with the event.
However eventful, the dinner reflects a remarkable moment in an extremely early 2024 campaign cycle: the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination breaking bread with a man who frequently posts racist content and Holocaust revisionism, brought there by a rapper who is launching his own presidential campaign under the shadow of his own antisemitic remarks.
Trump spent Thanksgiving week hanging out with Holocaust-denying white nationalists and being sued for rape.
Even if the mountain of potential criminal cases is set aside because Republican primary voters don’t care about them, the idea that the 2024 Republican nominee could be both found to have raped a woman and is palling around with Holocaust deniers could wreck entire Republican ballots across the country.
Every candidate that appears on a ballot with Trump will be asked about Fuentes and Holocaust denial.
