Kanye West may have just singlehandedly derailed Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential hopes.
West reached out to Trump for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago.
Considering how controversial he has been as of late, I am surprised Trump did not express better judgment and deny the meeting.
Right now, I am sure he wished he had.
When West showed up, he reportedly had Nick Fuentes in tow.
Trump stated, “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.”
West made matters worse by putting a video up on social media, claiming, “Trump is really impressed with Nick Fuentes.”
Fuentes has a very controversial past as a Holocaust denier…
Here's Nick Fuentes denying that the Holocaust happened.
Him and his followers are scum of the earth and their bad faith, anti-Semitic attacks should be shot down by the entire conservative movement. pic.twitter.com/7wJ9S7Q6zv

Fuentes has also been suspended by just about every social media platform there is, including GETTR, which a former Trump staffer launched.
However, he does have a verified account on Truth Social, which has raised even more eyebrows.
It took all of about two seconds for Trump’s critics to pounce on this, once again accusing Trump of being a racist, anti-Semite, and everything else you can possibly imagine.
Trump has done himself no favors on this front with some ill-advised social media posts.
For instance, when criticizing Governor Glenn Youngkin, he said his name sounded very “Chinese.”
Trump also recently made a statement about the lack of gratitude among American Jews for what he has done.
Trump stated, “No President has done more for Israel than I have. Somewhat surprisingly, however, our wonderful Evangelicals are far more appreciative of this than the people of the Jewish faith, especially those living in the U.S.
“Those living in Israel, though, are a different story – Highest approval rating in the World, could easily be P.M.! U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel – Before it is too late!”
Trump continues to be his own worst enemy with misstep after misstep, but this one seems to be a calculated move by Kanye West to hurt Trump for whatever reason.
