MONROE, La. (KNOE) - La. Senator Bill Cassidy made a statement on Twitter condemning Trump for hosting a dinner with “anti-Semites”.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday week, former president Trump hosted a dinner with Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and Nick Fuentes, a political podcaster known for denying the Holocaust.

Ye has recently been in the public spotlight for his anti-Semitic comments, which have caused him to lose deals and partnerships. Fuentes’ YouTube account was suspended in 2020 for violating the platform’s hate speech policy.

“President Trump hosting racist antisemites for dinner encourages other racist antisemites,” Cassidy Tweeted. “These attitudes are immoral and should not be entertained. This is not the Republican party.”
