For anyone who hasn’t yet given up on Kanye West, we present to you: the final straw.

The rapper was seen this week at a Miami airport with none other than white nationalist Nick Fuentes.

Fuentes is the founder of America First Foundation, an authoritarian right-wing group that preaches Trumpism on speed and is known to frequently post racist and antisemitic content.

Check out footage of Ye and Fuentes together below:

Ye and Fuentes were first spotted on Tuesday (22 November) at a Miami airport before being seen at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach that same day, according to Insider.

Later that night, Ye tweeted about his visit to Mar-a-Lago, revealing he asked the former president to be his running mate.

Ye wrote: “First time at Mar-a-Lago Rain and traffic Can’t believe I kept President Trump waiting. And I had on jeans. Yikes. What you guys think his response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?”

Covering reports that Trump ‘dined and conversed’ with Fuentes and Ye this week, The Guardian quoted Ye as saying in a video: “Trump is really impressed with Nick Fuentes and Nick Fuentes, unlike so many of the lawyers and so many people that he was left with on his 2020 campaign, he’s actually a loyalist.”

However, according to the paper, Trump called the meeting ‘quick and uneventful’.

Writing on his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump said: “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.”

UNILAD has approached representatives for Trump and West for comment.

Asked by someone off camera: “So you are running?”, West bluntly replied: “Yes”.

The rapper also laid out some of his political philosophy, claiming everyone needed to 'update together'.

He said: "It's gonna take us a while to update, right? But this is the update, we are the update.

"As a species we need to update together. Everything's been so divisive, think about when they say diversity, people look at that like it's a good thing but we're the United States of America.

"We're a universe, we're a university, we're a republic," he added.
