Test of GOP response to extremism comes from Trump’s meal with anti-Semites

The fracas is the first test of Donald Trump’s political endurance since launching his third run for the White House. It also tests how Republicans will handle the party’s extreme fringe in the months ahead after years of racist, misogynist and antisemitic speech. Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounced the remarks without naming Trump or the dinner guests. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has not commented; his spokespeople did not respond to requests for comment.
