Rapper Kanye West said that Donald Trump was “really impressed” with white nationalist Nick Fuentes when the three met at Mar-a-Lago recently.
In a video posted onto his Twitter account, West, discusses the meeting he had between himself, the former president and Fuentes, a Holocaust denier and leader of the far-right group the “Groyper Army.”
In the clip, recorded in Los Angeles, California, West said that the thing that Trump was “most perturbed about” was when the hip hop star asked him to be his running mate in the 2024 election.
West, who recently confirmed his intentions to run for president again following an unsuccessful run in 2020, then described how “the fact that I walked in with intelligence,” also caught Trump “off guard” at the meeting at his Florida home.
“Trump is really impressed with Nick Fuentes,” West said. “And Nick Fuentes, unlike so many of the lawyers and so many of the people that he was left with on his 2020 campaign, he’s actually a loyalist.”
In a 2019 livestream, Fuentes compared the Holocaust to baking cookies in an oven, saying that “the math doesn’t seem to add up” that 6 million people were killed.
