Milo Yiannopoulos served as Ye’s unofficial campaign manager for a few months. His position began after his summer internship with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Though the reason is unclear, Yiannopoulos announced his resignation from Ye’s team on his Telegram account.
Yiannopoulos did admit to setting up the controversial dinner between Ye, Trump and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes. He said he scheduled the dinner to “make Trump’s life miserable.”
Meanwhile Trump was indeed outraged by the set up, he said he wanted to help Ye and that Ye had always been good to him.
Alleged rifts had been made between Yiannopoulos and Ye’s campaign advisor Fuentes. Ye and Fuentes appeared on InfoWars with Alex Jones; during the show Ye said he liked Hitler among other anti-semitic comments. Yiannopoulos’ absence on the show indicated his plan to exit the campaign.
Yiannopoulos was accused of attempting to have Fuentes fired though he denied those allegations.
“Any suggestion that I tried to get anyone fired is false—especially not people I brought in myself, who owe me their gratitude, loyalty, and respect,” Yiannopoulos said.
Although Ye announced his plan to run in 2024, he has yet to fill out the paperwork necessary for an official presidential run. During Yiannopoulos’ time as Ye’s campaign manager, Taylor Greene was reported texting Yiannopoulos asking to meet up with Ye to “appear cool and get attention.” However, in light of Ye’s controversial actions she has backed out on her desire to meet with him.
