Pence suggested better judgment should have been exercised in screening invites. However, he also pointed out that Trump’s daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Jewish.

Trump denied knowing who Fuentes, saying he was Kanye West’s guest.

On his podcast following the dinner, Fuentes, who has been condemned by many on the right, said he does not believe that Trump initially recognized him.
