Trump furious Kanye ‘tried to f–k me’ with Fuentes invite

Donald Trump reportedly believes the rapper formerly known as Kanye West tried to sabotage him by bringing fellow antisemite Nick Fuentes to the former president’s Florida estate for dinner last week, then making that visit public.

“He tried to f–k me,” Trump fumed afterwards, according to NBC News. “He’s crazy. He can’t beat me.”

Both Trump and West, known to fans as Ye, have announced their hopes to be elected president in 2024. According to Ye, the former president became upset during their dinner meeting when the “Dark Fantasy” rapper asked him to run as vice president on a shared ticket.

Former President Donald Trump meets with rapper Kanye West in the Oval Office of the White House, Oct. 11, 2018.

Trump publicly denied knowing Fuentes prior to last week’s meeting. Still, he has ducked several opportunities to renounce the 24-year-old’s far-right political positions, which include skepticism about the toll of the Holocaust, where 6 million Jews were systematically murdered.

The fallout from the former president’s ongoing connection to white supremacists caused him to be condemned by fellow Republicans including Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell and former Vice President Mike Pence in recent days.

Ye said in a video posted online after the dinner meeting that Trump was “really impressed” by Fuentes.

Fuentes attended the deadly 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., where Trump said there were “fine people” marching alongside violent white nationalists to keep statues of Confederate leaders in place.

While Fuentes has called Trump “my hero,” the former president was not thrilled to have been caught dining with him, NBC claims. That outlet’s source said both men were pawns being moved around the board by Ye.

“The master troll got trolled,” that Trump adviser said. “Kanye punked Trump.”

Ye pledged on social media last month to go “Death con 3 [sic] on Jewish People,” who he blames for conspiring to control the entertainment industry. On Nov. 20, Ye announced his intentions to run for president in the next election.
