In the Wake of the Mar-a-lago Dinner, Trump Now Calls You a “Seriously Troubled Man”
A few days after having dinner with Ye and white nationalist activist Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago, Trump said that Ye was a “very damaged man.”
It was Trump’s third attempt on Truth Social to distance himself from his very controversial meeting last Tuesday with Holocaust denier Fuentes and Ye, whose antisemitic tweets threatening to “death con 3” Jews were recently blocked on Twitter.
Trump said on Saturday that he gave “very badly needed “advice” to a black man who was having a lot of trouble. Trump said, “Ye has always treated me well.”
In the article, the former president said again that he had never met Fuentes, who went to dinner with Ye. Ye didn’t answer Trump’s latest Truth Social post on Saturday. He has talked openly about being bipolar and has called it a “superpower.”
He said that Trump made Fuentes “very, very happy.” Sources say that Trump praised Fuentes at the meal. The ex-president told the Times, “He gets me.”
Trump stated in all three posts that he was unaware of Fuentes. In his podcast on Friday, Fuentes was vague. “I don’t think he knew I was me at dinner,” Fuentes said with a laugh. “That’s it. He may not have known me. I’m unsure.”
Fuentes is a well-known right-wing extremist who has the support of Trump supporters like Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.). Both politicians went to Fuentes’ white nationalist conference at the beginning of the year. That caused a firestorm in the media, which Trump seems to have ignored.

In a previous Truth Social post, Trump said Ye “expressed no antisemitism” at the meal despite his horrific words about Jews. Trump “appreciated all the nice things said about me on ‘Tucker Carlson.'”
Ye revealed the dinner in a Friday video, saying he requested Trump to be his vice president, and Trump “screamed” at him. Chris Christie, a Republican who used to be governor of New Jersey, told the Times on Friday that Trump’s dinner makes him “untenable” to be president.
Christie, who might run for president, said, “This is just another example of how badly Donald Trump makes decisions.
“We strongly condemn Kanye West and Nick Fuentes’s virulent antisemitism, and we call on all political leaders to reject their messages of hate and refuse to meet with them,” said Matt Brooks, CEO of the Republican Jewish Coalition.
David M. Friedman, who used to be the U.S. ambassador to Israel, told Trump that his meeting with anti-Semitic Ye and Fuentes was “unacceptable.” The Republican Jewish Coalition then posted Friedman’s message.
