The rapper wore a black head covering while delivering the remarks on Mr. Jones’ show Infowars, and was joined by far-right media personality Nick Fuentes, who recently caused his own story by meeting former President Donald Trump at a dinner with Mr. West.

“Well, I see good things about Hitler, also,” the rapper replied, who then credited the Nazi dictator with inventing highways and microphones. “Every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”
Mr. West, who legally changed his name to Ye, said later on that the “Jewish media made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world,” according to the New York Post.
Mr. Jones attempted to somewhat distinguish himself from Mr. West by saying “I think most Jews are great people,” before adding “but I agree there’s a Jewish mafia.”
He later said “I’m not on that whole Jew thing.”
“I don’t like the word ‘evil’ next to ‘Nazis,’” Mr. West said in another clip.

Mr. Jones tried to rebut the comment, but Mr. West interjected by saying “I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis,” which prompted a loud, astonished laugh from Mr. Jones.
At one point Mr. Jones flatly said “I don’t like Nazis,” according to the Daily Beast.
