Former President Donald Trump will meet with a group of Orthodox Jews on Friday amid the fallout from last month’s dinner with anti-Semitic rapper Kanye West and white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes.
Politico reported on Thursday that Trump will address the annual Torah Umesorah Presidents Conference at Trump National Doral Miami.
According to event promotional materialthe meeting brings together ‘CEOs, school presidents, principals and askanim’ – Jewish social workers – from around the country to discuss how to address the financial challenges facing Jewish schools.
Former President Donald Trump will meet with a group of Orthodox Jews on Friday, Politico reported, amid the fallout from last month’s dinner with anti-Semitic rapper Kanye West and white nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes.
The former president is still reeling from the fallout from his pre-Thanksgiving dinner with white nationalist Nick Fuentes (left) and anti-Semitic rapper Kanye West (right), a meeting that took place just a week after his presidential bid from 2024.
The Orthodox Jewish community tends to be more politically conservative and thus more politically aligned with Trump, a Republican, who criticized American Jewish leaders in a Truth Social post last week for lack of “loyalty.”
‘How quickly the Jewish leaders forget that I was the best, by far, president of Israel. They should be ashamed of themselves,’ he wrote in a post last Friday. “This lack of loyalty to its best friends and allies is the reason why a large number of members of Congress, and so many others, have stopped supporting Israel.”
The comments came as Trump was already in hot water over his pre-Thanksgiving dinner with West, who has been making anti-Semitic remarks for months, and Fuentes, a prominent white nationalist West has been toying with, in Mar- a-Lake. .
The meeting occurred just a week after his 2024 presidential bid.
Trump tried to downplay the dinner, claiming he did not know who Fuentes was and what he stood for when he arrived with the rapper at the Palm Beach property.
‘Last week, Kanye West called me for dinner at Mar-a-Lago. Shortly after, he showed up unexpectedly with three of his friends who he knew nothing about,” Trump said on Truth Social. ‘We had dinner Tuesday night with many members present in the backyard. Dinner was quick and uneventful. Then they left for the airport.
On Fox News, Trump said: “I had never heard of the man; I had no idea what his views were, and they were not expressed at the table at our very quick dinner, or it would not have been accepted.”
However, he has not condemned the ideology of West and Fuentes.
Instead, in a Truth Social post on December 1attacked an Associated Press reporter for writing that guests meeting with Trump will now be fully vetted after the disastrous dinner.
The AP report also said that Mar-a-Lago security directed Fuentes to go inside, even though only West was on the security list. “Sources apparently did not show identification for him and the driver of the car, a frequent guest at the club, got in using a credit card after losing his license,” the article said.
“We have very strong security, especially with the extremely talented Secret Service agents on the premises, but when I meet someone, as I did with Ye, we will not allow my guests to be frisked, thrown against walls and physically beaten.” ‘ Trump wrote. Anonymous sources do not exist. Stories that say otherwise are FAKE NEWS!’
