All week, Washington, D.C., has been talking about Donald Trump’s dinner with Nick Fuentes, a notorious white supremacist and Holocaust denier. A wave of prominent Republicans have repudiated the dinner and anti-Semitism, including Senators Mitch McConnell and Mitt Romney. Trump’s former Vice-President, Mike Pence, also condemned the meeting, with the caveat that he didn’t think his former boss was a bigot or an anti-Semite. But the issue goes beyond a single meal.
