Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene denounced white nationalist Nick Fuentes on Friday, months after she appeared at a conference he founded.
Greene was a speaker at the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC), organized by Nick Fuentes, who attended the violent 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Fuentes has also denied that the Holocaust happened. (RELATED: Milo Yiannopoulos Says He Arranged Fuentes, Trump Dinner To Make ‘Trump’s Life Miserable’)
“Most people in this country have no clue who Nick Fuentes is and if they heard his statements that he makes they would want nothing to do with him,” Greene said on the show.
MTG denounces Nick Fuentes as an “immature young man saying hateful things about people.”

“He sounds like a very immature young man, saying hateful things about people, and calling, using a people group talking about people he doesn’t like by an entire people group which is horrible, why would he ever do that? And then also saying, ‘oh I’m not racist or I’m not these things.’ Yeah, yeah you are if you talk that way,” she added.
Greene also said she didn’t know why “Kanye West would align himself with that.”
Nick Fuentes attended a dinner Donald Trump hosted at his Florida home for Kanye West last week. Trump did not know that Fuentes would make an appearance at the dinner, Kanye later confirmed.
In a Thursday appearance on Infowars, West made a number of anti-semitic claims to host Alex Jones and said that he “liked Hitler” and that he sees “good things about Hitler.”
