Former President Donald Trump sat down with America’s #1 most-watched cable host Tucker Carlson at his Mar-a-Lago home for a historic interview amidst his legal battle in Manhattan. This interview marks Trump’s first since his unprecedented indictment, and the duo discussed a range of topics, including Joe Biden’s fitness at 80, the war in Ukraine, and Bragg’s witch hunt.

When discussing Ukraine, Trump made it clear that Putin actually has more nuclear weapons in his arsenal than the United States. This revelation makes ending the conflict as soon as possible crucial. Trump emphasized that “if he decided to use his second form of destruction – which is nuclear – that’s the end of that … You [Tucker] understand.”

Tucker couldn’t stop praising Trump’s answers on foreign policy stating that “His grasp of foreign policy… His understanding of world affairs is so much more nuanced and sophisticated and pro-American than the moronic neocons currently in charge. It was remarkable.” Tucker didn’t point fingers but neoconservatives likely includes current Republican leadership in Congress who have doubled down on supporting Ukraine as of late, and 2024 Republican presidential hopefuls, including former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Vice President Mike Pence.
On a unique segment of Carlson’s show earlier this year, he asked potential GOP candidates where they stand on the war in Ukraine. Pompeo and Pence both committed to supporting Ukraine in its endless conflict to the bitter end, while Trump, DeSantis, and Vivek Ramaswamy signaled a desire to end the war as soon as possible.
It’s clear that Trump and Carlson resonate with Republicans, who are tired of establishment neoconservatives who are more concerned with diplomacy and war than with putting America first. They are focused on ending the war and protecting America, and their understanding of the world during these turbulent times is what we need.
