In what appeared to be a reassurance aimed at white supremacist Nick Fuentes — Donald Trump’s new dinner companion — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) seemed to suggest Friday that the former president will pardon Jan. 6 insurrectionists if he returns to the Oval Office.
Fuentes, a fascist with racist and antisemitic views, dined with Trump and the rapper Ye on Tuesday evening — though Trump has insisted on his Truth Social platform that he had no idea who Fuentes was.
Fuentes complained at the dinner, held at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, that the former president’s backers were upset about his lack of support for those who rioted at the U.S. Capitol last year, according to Axios.
Ye — formerly known as Kanye West — said in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday that he also spoke to Trump about his failure to pardon the insurrectionists.
Greene then complained on Twitter about such gripes from “people in certain echo chambers” in the “past day or so,” apparently referring to Ye and Fuentes.
The congresswoman noted in a tweet that Trump has said “over and over at practically every single rally that he will pardon January 6 defendants when he becomes president again.”
“I’ve been to a lot of rallies this year and I’ve heard him say he [Trump] will pardon J6 defendants multiple times,” she wrote in another tweet.
“I have not heard any other potential 2024 presidential candidate say that yet,” she added in what could be a voting boost for his competitors in the race.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Friday that dining with a white supremacist makes Trump an “untenable” candidate for president. Greene, who early this year spoke at a white nationalist conference organized by Fuentes, may have just dug a bigger hole for the former president.
