Donald Trump has invited personalities from across the right-wing internet to the White House on Thursday for a "Social Media Summit," but the event is causing his administration headaches even before it begins.

So far, the summit has stirred up resentments among pro-Trump personalities who were never invited to the party, and one invitee has been disinvited over an anti-Semitic cartoon—raising questions for the White House about why he was invited in the first place.

The White House hasn't released a public list of attendees for the Thursday afternoon event, but a number of pro-Trump personalities have posted invitations on Twitter. They include Ali Alexander, a right-wing operative pushing a smear that Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) isn't really "an American Black," a pro-Trump "memesmith" who goes by the screenname "@CarpeDonktum," and blogger Jim Hoft, whose Gateway Pundit blog frequently promotes hoaxes.
