Donald Trump is facing growing condemnation for hosting white supremacist Nick Fuentes at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida last week. Fuentes, who is a Holocaust denier, dined with the president along with the rapper Kanye West, who was suspended from Twitter last month for making antisemitic comments. Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence said, “President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table. I think he should apologize for it, and he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric without qualification.” At the White House, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre also condemned Trump’s actions.
Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre: “This administration, this president totally rejects bigotry, racism, antisemitism. And there is just no place for these types of vile forces in our society.”
