As reported by Newsbusters; On Fox News Sunday, Jennifer Griffin, who was a guest on the program, noted that the dinner that Donald Trump had with Nick Fuentes had prompted criticism from prominent Republicans. Jonathan Swan, a liberal reporter, tried to draw a harsher line, urging Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, to also criticize the former president.
There were no prominent Republicans who criticized Trump. This suggests that despite the various controversies that he has faced, many members of the party still remain reluctant to attack him. Even though there are many people who would like to see him removed from office, they still don't want to go after him.
After noting that the dinner that Trump had with Nick Fuentes had prompted criticism from prominent Republicans, Swan noted that the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, had remained silent about it. It seems that DeSantis is keeping his 2024 powder dry.
According to Swan, who was able to speak with some of Trump's team members, they weren't "freaking out" or "lighting their hair on fire" about the dinner. They said that the event was just another day at the office, considering how they had been through the various controversies that he had faced. The dinner was also strange since Fuentes had previously heckled Donald Trump Jr.
During the program, Jennifer Griffin noted that Trump's dinner at Mar-a-Lago with Nick Fuentes had prompted criticism from prominent Republicans. She also noted that the president had doubled the number of anti-Semites in the room by adding him to Kanye.
After working for Axios, Swan is set to become a reporter for the New York Times. He has been regarded as one of the most balanced journalists on the national scene.
