Several top Republican has condemned Trump for meeting with Nick Fuentes.
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Sunday that Democrats and "sane Republicans" should not underestimate Trump's "evil charisma," which may help him win the 2024 Republican nomination.
"I think Democrats and sane Republicans underestimate Trump at their own peril, because in order for Trump not to win the nomination, there has to be a better alternative," Psaki said on NBC's Meet the Press.
Psaki continues by saying that Ron DeSantis and Mike Pence might not have what it takes to win the Republican nomination against the former President.
"Ron DeSantis, this man – he's either the savior or he's currently at his peak. Mike Pence, with all due respect, didn't exactly light the world on fire politically before he was selected by Donald Trump to be his running mate," Psaki said.
"Trump has some evil charisma that helped him win the nomination," Psaki added.
Trump announced his third presidential run at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach last month.
Several top Republicans have already condemned Trump for meeting with Nick Fuentes who is widely known as a white supremacist and anti-Semite.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said last week that "there is no room in the Republican Party for anti-Semitism or white supremacy."
"Anyone meeting with people advocating that point of view, in my judgment, are highly unlikely to ever be elected President," McConnell said.
