(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Donald Trump confirmed on Friday that he had dinner this week with Kanye West and anti-Semite Nick Fuentes while saying that he didn’t know who is Fuentes and that West brought him to Mar-a-Lago uninvited, according to the Gateway Pundit.
“NEW: Statement from fmr President Trump in response to our story about his dinner w Ye and Fuentes: ‘Kanye West very much wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago. Our dinner meeting was intended to be Kanye and me only, but he arrived with a guest whom I had never met and knew nothing about,’” Jonathan Swan from Axios reported.
Trump also posted on his Truth Social account, describing the meeting as “uneventful.”
“This past week, Kanye West called me to have dinner at Mar-a-Lago. Shortly thereafter, he unexpectedly showed up with three of his friends, whom I knew nothing about,” he wrote.
“We had dinner on Tuesday evening with many members present on the back patio. The dinner was quick and uneventful. They then left for the airport.”
The third guest was Karen Giorno, the former Trump campaign staffer.
The leftist Politico was the first outlet that reported on the story of Fuentes visiting Mar-a-Lago.
”According to a source, far-right extremist Nick Fuentes was spotted with Kanye West at Mar-a-Lago,” Meridith McGraw tweeted on Wednesday. “West tweeted last night he met with Trump at the club. West and Fuentes were also seen together at Miami airport.”
At first, a source denied to the Daily Beast that Trump met Fuentes.
“A source familiar with the matter told The Daily Beast that while West had dinner with Trump, Fuentes was not present.”
In a video that he posted on Twitter, West said that Trump was “really impressed with Nick Fuentes.”
West also claimed that during his visit he asked Trump to be his vice presidential running mate for the 2024 campaign.
He also posted a screenshot of a group chat on Thursday, where he, Yiannopoulos and Fuentes discussed the Mar-a-Lago visit.
