Trump advisers called his dinner with Ye and white supremacist Nick Fuentes a 'nightmare' as Trump tries to correct ideas about dinner on Truth Social

  • Rapper Ye met former President Donald Trump for dinner this week.
  • Several sources told NBC News the dinner didn’t go well.
  • Now the Trump team hopes to minimize the damage caused by the meeting.

After meeting with fallen billionaire rap mogul Kanye West, three sources close to former President Donald Trump told NBC News the pre-Thanksgiving party went awry, leaving his team to play down the damage.

“This is a fucking nightmare,” an anonymous longtime Trump adviser told NBC News. “If people watch [Florida Gov. Ron] DeSantis will run against Trump, here’s another reason.”

Ye, recently criticized for his anti-Semitic rants, announced he would run for president in 2024, despite failing to submit the necessary papers, and asked Trump if he would be his running mate.

And on Tuesday, Ye was spotted at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and resort with well-known white supremacist Nick Fuentes.

A couple of days later, Ye claimed that Trump raised his voice against him and badmouthed his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, over dinner.

“When Trump started basically yelling at me at the table telling me I was going to lose, I mean, has that ever worked for anyone in history?” You said in a video he tweeted on Thursday.

“I’m like whoa wait, wait, wait. You’re talking to Ye,” she said in the video. The clip was one of several videos the rapper posted on Thursday with the tagline “YE24.”

An anonymous source reminded NBC News that Trump told Ye he couldn’t beat him in a presidential race. He also claims that Trump noticed that Ye had just finished telling him that he was the best president ever.

On Friday, Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to correct the narrative of the meeting. He said dinner was “quick and easy”. He added that he didn’t know Ye was coming to Mar-a-Lago and that he didn’t know the three people Ye had brought along.

The three unnamed sources told NBC News that Trump did not know who white supremacist Nick Fuentes was at the time of the dinner. They said but they said Trump knew one attendee, Karen Giorno. Giorno was Trump’s campaign manager in Florida in 2016, NBC News reported. Another man, whose identity was not specified, was present, the outlet wrote.

“Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was asking me for advice on some of his struggles, particularly around his business. We also discussed, to a lesser extent, politics, where I told him he absolutely shouldn’t run for President,” all voters they should vote for TRUMP,” Trump posted on Truth Social on Friday.

“Anyway, we got along great, he didn’t express anti-Semitism, and I appreciated all the nice things he said about me on ‘Tucker Carlson.’ Why shouldn’t I agree to meet? Also, I didn’t know Nick Fuentes,” Trump added.
