Saturday 26 November 2022 08:38 PM 'You don't want to know what I think,' Biden on Trump and Fuentes trends now
'You don't want to know what I think,' he said in response to DailyMail.com's question while he was out shopping on Nantucket with wife Jill and daughter Ashley.
Biden, who is spending the Thanksgiving holiday on the island, was out for Small Business Saturday. He visited at least nine stores in the more than hour he spent walking around the downtown shopping area.
Trump caused an outrage - even among some Republicans - when it was revealed he had dinner with Fuentes, described as an alt-right figure and a 'white supremacist,' at his Palm Beach home. Ye, as the rapper West goes by now, was also present.
The White House earlier weighed in on the matter, with spokesman Andrew Bates saying: 'Bigotry, hate, and antisemitism have absolutely no place in America - including at Mar-A-Lago. Holocaust denial is repugnant and dangerous, and it must be forcefully condemned.'

Trump acknowled the dinner in a post on Truth Social on Friday but said Fuentes was a guest of West's. He did not condemn Fuentes' beliefs.
'This past week, Kanye West called me to have dinner at Mar-a-Lago. Shortly thereafter, he unexpectedly showed up with three of his friends, whom I knew nothing about. We had dinner on Tuesday evening with many members present on the back patio. The dinner was quick and uneventful. They then left for the airport.'
The former president also said that he 'didn't know' Fuentes and had offered West business as well as political advice.
'I told him he should definitely not run for President, 'any voters you may have should vote for TRUMP,' the former president wrote on Truth Social. 'Anyway, we got along great, he expressed no anti-Semitism, & I appreciated all of the nice things he said about me on 'Tucker Carlson.'
West has gotten into hot fire for his recent anti-Semitic remarks causing companies like Adidas to severe ties with him.
On Friday, Ye said that Trump was 'impressed' with Fuentes in a video posted to Twitter.
'So Trump is really impressed with Nick Fuentes, and Nick Fuentes, unlike so many of the lawyers, and so many of the people that he was left with on his 2020 campaign, he's actually a loyalist,' Ye said.
Fuentes is a subject of much controversy.
In an episode of his podcast, Fuentes 'jokingly' denied the Holocaust and compared Jews who were burnt in Nazi
