Trump is not happy.

Former President Donald Trump unloaded on Republican Senator Mitch McConnell after he attacked Trump for having a dinner with white nationalist Nick Fuentes.

Trump didn’t know Fuentes was a white nationalist before holding the dinner and has already made that clear to the media.

According to Fox, Trump attacked McConnell and said that he was “a loser for our nation and for the Republican Party.”

All of this drama started when Trump held a meeting with rapper Ye (Kanye West) at Mar-a-Lago. Trump was unaware that Ye was bringing white nationalist Nick Fuentes with him and Trump also claims to not have known who Fuentes was to begin with.

McConnell condemned Trump and said, “There is no room in the Republican Party for antisemitism or white supremacy. And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States.” 

Trump responded to McConnell’s attack and said, “Mitch is a loser for our nation and for the Republican Party who would not have been re-elected in Kentucky without my endorsement, which he begged me for because he was going down. His well-financed opponent had $93 million ready to spend when I drove him from two points down to 21 points up in a matter of days.”

When asked by reporters about his dinner with Fuentes, Trump said that he “had never heard of Nick Fuentes.”

“I had never heard of the man — I had no idea what his views were, and they weren’t expressed at the table in our very quick dinner, or it wouldn’t have been accepted,” Trump explained.
