Former President Donald Trump responded to the most recent episode of Tucker On Twitter, in which former Fox News host Tucker Carlson referred to Vice President Joe Biden as a “wannabe dictator.” Trump concurred with Carlson and criticized the “wannabe dictator” residing in the White House.
After the former president was indicted by the federal government, a Fox News chyron referring to President Biden as a “wannabe dictator” prompted outrage from the left and the mainstream media, which was the primary focus of Carlson’s segment. The longtime Fox employee in charge of the chyron has been let go, and the network has issued an apology.
“If the banner on Fox was false, why the hysteria?” Tucker asked. “Lies don’t seem to bother anyone anymore. But calling Joe Biden a wannabe dictator, that stung.”
“Just because he’s trying to put the other candidate in prison for the rest of his life for a crime he himself committed doesn’t mean he has a totalitarian impulse. Come on, that’s absurd,” he joked. Without mentioning Biden specifically, Carlson went on to describe some actions committed or demanded by the Biden administration, including the illegal surveillance of American citizens, the murder of Ashli Babbitt, and rumors that the IRS is amassing weapons and ammunition.

In a Friday video statement, the former president of the United States concurred with Carlson’s speech.
“Tucker Carlson, a very good guy, is exactly right,” Trump began. “The number one reason the totally corrupt Biden Administration and the sick Washington establishment, are after me is because I stand up to their failed foreign policy agenda.”
In his most recent column, which was published on the day Trump was officially charged in Miami, Florida, Tucker Carlson argued that the former president is being targeted because he refused to carry out permanent Washington foreign policy objectives and interminable conflicts. The former Fox News host referenced Trump’s memorable exchange with Jeb Bush from the 2016 GOP debate in South Carolina, in which Trump claimed that the Bush Administration had deceived about the presence of WMD in Iraq and that “they knew about it.”
“The one thing Washington cannot forgive is that I put America first, always put America first,” Trump continued. “I have to do that to make America great again.”
Trump continued by asserting that one of the primary reasons for his prosecution was his desire to end the violence in Ukraine. Trump has pledged to negotiate with both sides and has been criticized for his “refusal” to convey a desire for Ukraine to “win.”

“Most recently the warmongers, globalists and deep staters are absolutely livid that I refuse to bend the knee to their next endless war in Ukraine,” Trump said Friday. “I want peace; they want money and they want conflict, even if it means walking us into the brink of World War III. Which, frankly, it is doing and its doing it rapidly.” CONTINUE READING…
