Netanyahu says Trump's dinner with anti-Semites Kanye West and Nick Fuentes was ... trends now

Israel's Prime Minister-elect has branded Donald Trump's dinner with anti-Semite Kanye West and holocaust denier Nick Fuentes a 'mistake, wrong and misplaced'.

Benjamin Netanyahu, who is posed to return to office after elections earlier this month, praised the former president for being a 'supporter of Israel', but said he shouldn't repeat the mistake in the future.

Trump has repeatedly said he did not know until after the fact that he had had dinner with Nick Fuentes, a far-right activist who uses his online platform to spew antisemitic and white nationalist rhetoric. Other reports said Trump had been 'very taken' with Fuentes during the impromptu dinner at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Fuentes arrived by car with Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, who in recent weeks has all but wrecked his reputation as a musician and fashion giant by making a series of antisemitic comments and sharing baseless conspiracy theories.

'I think that that's what I would say about President Trump's decision to dine with this person I think is wrong and misplaced,' Netanyahu told journalist Bari Weiss, in a piece she posted on Wednesday on her 'Common Sense' newsletter.

'I think it's a mistake. He shouldn't do that,' Netanyahu added.

It was not immediately clear who the future Israeli PM was referring to when he said 'this person'. He also condemned West's recent remarks about Jewish people.

Despite the meeting, Netanyahu made it clear that he still appreciates Trump, who made a number of Israel-friendly policy decisions during his time in office.

These included moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, ending the Iran nuclear deal, recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the contested Golan Heights and defunding Palestinian groups - among other steps.

'He has been a tremendous supporter of Israel, and I'm unabashedly appreciative of what he did for Israel,' Netanyahu told Weiss.

'I appreciate all that it doesn't take away from. Also, you know, he's been very supportive of the Jewish people. So I think he made a mistake. I hope it's not repeated. That's all I can tell you.' Weiss asked Netanyahu to describe Trump with a single adjective. He chose 'irreverent'.
