Kanye West continues to make headlines for the wrong reasons.

On Tuesday, Ye traveled to former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate with Nick Fuentes, a white nationalist who’s known for promoting racist and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. Fuentes gained notoriety after participating in the 2017 white supremacist “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

While the Daily Beast initially reported that Fuentes did not have dinner with Trump and West, another source confirmed to Axios that the three did in fact dine with one another.

“Kanye West very much wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago,” Trump said. “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.” 

Donald Trump did in fact have dinner with far-right extremist Nick Fuentes, who was at Trump’s club — as I first reported — with Kanye West.

I was told by a source last night that Nick Fuentes did not meet with Trump, but that was incorrect. Fuentes came as a guest of Kanye.

Kanye took to Twitter on Thursday to share a video recapping his visit to Mar-A-Lago, confirming that he asked Trump to be his running mate in 2024.

Ye previously announced the news in a tweet on Tuesday, writing, “What you guys think [Trump’s] response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?”

“I think the thing that Trump was most perturbed about, me asking him to be my vice president,” Ye said in the video posted on Thursday. “I think that was like lower on the list of things that caught him off-guard.”

According to Kanye, Trump screamed at him, telling West that he’s going to lose in the upcoming election.

“When Trump started basically screaming at me at the table telling me I was gonna lose,” Ye said in the clip. “I mean, has that ever worked for anyone in history? I’m like, ‘Woah woah, hold on, hold on, Trump. You’re talking to Ye.’”

Kanye also claimed Trump insulted him and ex-wife Kim Kardashian during the visit.

“But then he goes on to say that, ‘Kim is a [bleep], you can tell her I said that,’” he said. “And I was thinking like, ‘That’s the mother of my children.’ Since we and all the Christians in America that love Trump, know that Trump is a conservative, we’re gonna demand that you hold all policies directly to the Bible.”
