Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took a jab at former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, saying it would be unlikely that he would “ever be elected” again.
Trump has come under scrutiny after white nationalist Nick Fuentes and Kanye West, formally known as ‘Ye,’ joined the 45th president for a dinner at Mar-a-Lago. Trump has denied having prior knowledge that Fuentes would be joining and claimed he didn’t know who Fuentes was.
“There is no room in the Republican Party for anti-Semitism or white supremacy. And anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgement, are highly unlikely to ever be elected president of the United States,” McConnell said.

Several other prominent Republicans have spoken out about the dinner, including former Vice President Mike Pence, who said Trump “was wrong to give a white nationalist, an antisemite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table.”
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tweeted Saturday, “this is just awful, unacceptable conduct from anyone, but most particularly from a former President and current candidate.”
Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Sunday on CNN that he hopes “we won’t have to be responding to what former President Donald Trump has said or done.”
