Donald Trump Takes Aim at Kanye West: 'Seriously Troubled'

Linkedin Share

Former President Donald Trump found himself in a bit of controversy late last week, after a bit of a scandalous meal at Mar-a-Lago was shared on social media.

Trump was seen dining with hip hop superstar Kanye West, which isn’t terribly unusual given that the pair have been known to enjoy one another’s company in the past.  But with West was Nick Fuentes, a known Holocaust-denier and overt white supremacist that sent social media users into hysterics.

Now, in response to the outrage, Trump is suggesting that Fuentes was a guest of West, and that the rapper is a “seriously troubled man”.

Former President Donald Trump dismissed Kanye West on Saturday as “seriously troubled” after the controversial rapper visited his home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida last week.

“So I help a seriously troubled man, who just happens to be black, Ye (Kanye West), who has been decimated in his business and virtually everything else, and who has always been good to me, by allowing his request for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, alone, so that I can give him very much needed ‘advice,’” Trump wrote on social media, referring to West’s multiple antisemitic rants that prompted major companies to exit from their media and fashion sponsorships with the rapper.

And then…

On social media, Trump said that West was expected to come alone and he did not know who West’s guests were.

“He shows up with 3 people, two of which I didn’t know, the other a political person who I haven’t seen in years,” he wrote, referring to West’s guests, which included former Trump aide Karen Giorno, who reportedly joined West’s campaign and was with Fuentes.

The former president also addressed West’s announcement that he would run for president in 2024.

“I told him don’t run for office, a total waste of time, can’t win,” Trump recalled.

West announced his 2024 presidential bid last week as well, but it is unclear how seriously the hip hop star is going to taking the race.
