Amid Mar-A-Lago dinner fallout, Trump now calls you a ‘seriously troubled man’

Just days after having dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Ye – the rapper formerly known as Kanye West – and white supremacist political activist Nick Fuentes, Donald Trump is now calling Ye a “seriously troubled man”.

This was Trump’s third attempt on Truth Social to address his hugely controversial meeting last Tuesday with Holocaust denier Fuentes and Ye, whose anti-Semitic posts (in which he pledged to ” Death Con 3” against the Jewish people) were recently blocked on Twitter.

“So I’m helping a seriously troubled man, who happens to be black,” Trump wrote on Saturday, offering “much needed ‘advice’.” You have “always been good to me,” Trump added.

The former president once again insisted in the post that he didn’t know Fuentes, who accompanied Ye to dinner.

On Saturday night, Ye had yet to respond to Trump’s latest Truth Social message. He has spoken openly about his diagnosis of bipolar disorder, a condition he also called a “super power.”

As for Fuentes, Trump was “very impressed” with him, according to Ye. Sources told The New York Times and Axios that Trump even praised Fuentes at the dinner. “He understands me,” the former president said, according to the Times.

But in each of the three messages, Trump stressed that he had no idea who Fuentes was.

Fuentes himself covered the issue in his podcast on Friday.

“I don’t think he knew I was me at dinner” – at least at first Fuentes laughed. “Let’s put it this way. I don’t know if I’m going to say he didn’t know me. I’m not sure about that.”

Fuentes is a high-profile right-wing extremist backed by key Trump allies, like Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Paul Gosar (R-Arizona). The two lawmakers spoke at a white supremacy conference hosted by Fuentes earlier this year. This sparked a fierce controversy, which was widely and widely covered by the media, which was apparently neglected by Trump.

Regarding Ye’s appalling statements about Jews, Trump pointed out in an earlier Truth Social article that Ye “expressed no anti-Semitism” – at the dinner. Trump noted that he “appreciates all the beautiful things [Ye] he said of me in “Tucker Carlson”.

The dinner was first revealed in a video on Friday by Ye, who claimed to have asked Trump to be his vice president, and that Trump “screamed” at him.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (right) told The Times on Friday that Trump’s dinner made him an “untenable” candidate for president.

“This is just another example of a terrible lack of judgment on the part of Donald Trump,” said Christie, who could run for president himself.

Matt Brooks, chief executive of the Republican Jewish Coalition, released a statement, without naming Trump, saying, “We strongly condemn the virulent anti-Semitism of Kanye West and Nick Fuentes, and call on all political leaders to reject their messages of hate and refuse to meet them.

The Republican Jewish Coalition also retweeted a message from former US Ambassador to Israel David M. Friedman telling Trump that his meeting with anti-Semites Ye and Fuentes was “unacceptable.”
