Kanye West said in a video that Donald Trump started “screaming” at him during dinner at Mar-a-Lago and told the rapper he would lose if he were to run for president in 2024.
Said West: “When Trump started basically screaming at me at the table telling me I was going to lose, I mean has that ever worked for anyone in history?”
He added: “I’m like whoa hold on, hold on, hold on. You’re talking to Ye.”
Donald Trump dined with rapper Kanye West and white nationalist Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago earlier this week, Axios reports.
“Trump’s direct engagement with a man labeled a ‘white supremacist’ by the Justice Department, one week after declaring his 2024 candidacy, is likely to draw renewed outrage over the former president’s embrace of extremists.”
Trump is now trying to back away from the dinner: “This past week, Kanye West called me to have dinner at Mar-a-Lago. Shortly thereafter, he unexpectedly showed up with three of his friends, whom I knew nothing about. We had dinner on Tuesday evening with many members present on the back patio. The dinner was quick and uneventful. They then left for the airport.”…
“This is a fucking nightmare. If people are looking at DeSantis to run against Trump, here’s another reason why.”
