NEW YORK — Former President Donald Trump is drawing criticism for dining with a Holocaust-denying white nationalist and the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.
The meeting came days after Trump launched his third campaign for the White House.
Trump had dinner Tuesday evening at his Mar-a-Lago club with West, who is now known as Ye, as well as far-right activist Nick Fuentes, who has used his online platform to spew antisemitic and white nationalist rhetoric.
Ye has also made a series of antisemitic comments in recent weeks.
Trump says he gets along great with Ye and didn’t know Fuentes or his views.
