Former President Donald Trump has a way of staying in the news, and not always for good reasons. Trump recently had dinner with Nick Fuentes, a white nationalist whose known for calling black people degenerates and being openly antisemitic. While Democrats have condemned the former President for this meeting, media outlets are accusing Republicans for failing to condemn the meeting. Some have simply said its a “bad idea.” Others are saying that it’s a free country, and Trump can meet with whomever he wants. However, a few have condemned the president for the dinner with the best response coming from former Vice President Mike Pence who said, “President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table. And I think he should apologize for it.”
