Greene joined the ranks of her fellow Republican lawmakers, including Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Lindsey Graham (R-GA), John Thune (R-SD), and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in calling out Fuentes as outside of the Republican Party’s ideals. Greene called the self-proclaimed white nationalist an “immature young man saying hateful things about people.”
“Most people in this country has no clue who Nick Fuentes is, and if they heard his statements, they would want nothing to do with him,” Greene said. “The reality is, why would anyone want to follow or hang out with someone that condemns an entire group of people constantly when he knows nothing? What has he ever done in his life?”

Greene attended the Fuentes-founded America First Political Action Conference, a conference closely tied to white nationalist policies, as recently as February. At the time, Greene claimed she did not know about Fuentes’s extreme views.
Former President Donald Trump hosted a dinner last month at Mar-a-Lago with Fuentes and Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West. Greene endorsed Trump for president and has not rescinded her endorsement.
