After previously dining with Trump, Nick Fuentes gives Nazi salute and discusses his willingness to commit violence for Trump

Fuentes dined with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in 2022

In November 2022, just days after announcing his 2024 run for president, former President Donald Trump dined with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago. As noted at the time, Trump made numerous remarks around the visit but declined to make any statements condemning Fuentes. While some Republicans spoke out, many others were silent, including many Fox News commentators.

Fuentes is a white supremacist leader who attended the deadly 2017 “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, called for a “white uprising” to install Trump as a dictator, and has generated a lengthy list of bigoted statements, including his recent exhortation for Jews to “get the fuck out of America.” He is also a Holocaust denier.

Now, on the evening that Trump won the Iowa GOP caucus, Fuentes spoke out about his loyalty to Trump — while giving a Nazi salute and discussing his willingness to commit extrajudicial violence for “Supreme Leader Trump.”

NICK FUENTES (HOST): I am not a Republican. I am a Trump cultist, and I want everyone to know that. I am not a Republican. Do not lump me in with them. I am not a Republican. I do not support McCarthy. I do not support McConnell. I do not support Haley or DeSantis. I do not watch Fox News. I don't support any of that.

I am a Donald Trump cultist. I am a soldier for Donald Trump. I am part of — I serve at the personal pleasure of Donald Trump, my supreme leader. I am part of the paramilitary wing of the Trump movement. I am part of the Revolutionary Guard.

I do not answer to the Pentagon. I do not answer to the civilian government. I answer — I am the Praetorian Guard of Donald Trump. If Donald Trump ordered me to do an extrajudicial killing, I would perform it.

I do not swear an oath to the Constitution. I swear an oath to Art of the Deal.

You know — you have — and that — you know it's fine. You have your civilian military, you have your civilian National Guard, and all that stuff. And they work for the Constitution. They work for the government.

I don't. I work for Donald Trump personally. Now, I'm not — I don't — I'm not contracted. This is just like, you know, but — I do. But I would work for him like that. I am part of the paramilitary wing.

It's sort of like whatever Trump told me to do, I would do it. If Trump said, like, hey, you know, if Trump called me up and said, it's MAGA night at the White House, we need you. I would go there. I would. If he summoned me, I would arrive. If he sent me somewhere and said, look, we need to torture Hillary Clinton — theoretically. I wouldn't obviously do that of my own volition. But if Donald Trump won the election and Donald Trump called me on a secret burner phone and he said, look, we have to capture and — no, we can't go there. We actually can't go, actually can't go there.

But if Donald Trump called me up and said, look, we need to capture my political enemies and torture them, you're OK with that, right? This is totally off the books. This is a black op. If he called me up and told me to do it, I would. I would be like, sir, yes — I wouldn't even say, yes, Mr. President. I would say it will be done. I would say it will be done, Supreme Leader. I would say something like that. I wouldn't even say — I wouldn't even say yes, sir. I would say it will be done, Supreme Leader. I would say something like — I would say some serious, like Star Wars, like Roman Empire, like something totally not — something totally — something kind of foreign and anachronistic. I would say something completely anachronistic. You know, in the military — in the military they're like sir, yes, sir, right away, Mr. President. I would be like, it will be done, Supreme Leader Trump. It would be something like that. It would be something like that.

No. I'm kidding, kidding, kidding, kidding. Dude, listen, we're just having fun with it, OK? You can't hate. You can't hate on me because it's just — this is just a little bit of parody. We're just having fun with it. It's all jokes. Don't worry. I'm just kidding. OK? That's all a joke before everybody gets on my — he Nazi saluted! It's just a joke. It's just like, hey, what if. It's just a joke. Everybody relax. It's just entertainment. We're having fun with it. We're having fun tonight. It's Iowa caucus tonight. The boomers are out, they're wearing their beanies. They got Band-Aids on their faces. We're just having a good time. We're riffing our hearts out. I just trolled you, OK? Anyway. All right.
