The collective response from the Republican Party has been to shrug off Trump’s dining with Holocaust deniers.
Robert Costa of CBS News tweeted:
To me, the story here isn’t how a prominent pusher of hate against Jewish people ended up at a table with Trump. The story is the response of so many so far in a party that could nominate him: a shrug or indifference. All as many shrug or ignore his nods toward Q Anon conspiracy.

If Republicans were serious about getting rid of Trump, the dining with Holocaust deniers story is the perfect time to mobilize, condemn him, and take action. None of that has happened because the Republican Party is the Trump party now. It has been remade in his image, which means that very few people are going to speak out, and those who do will find themselves out of the party.
Trump is a disaster for the Republican Party. He has cost them three straight elections and continues to do whatever he wants because the former president doesn’t care about the political consequences of his actions.
Democrats have built a coalition. Trump has built a cult, and cults don’t win elections.
