Tucker Carlson Defends President Trump’s Historic Visit to North Korea

Published

on

The Fake News Media is trying to smear Tucker Carlson after defending President Trump’s visit with North Korean leader King Jong-Un.

Carlson received heat for saying that part of leading a country “means killing people.”

Trump received criticism from all across the political spectrum when he became the first sitting president to cross the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and meet with Kim in North Korea.

During a phone interview on “Fox & Friends Sunday”, Carlson was asked if Trump was “pandering” to the North Korean leader or was angering the American public for not taking a tough stance on Kim’s long record of human rights violations.

Carlson admitted that there “is no defending the North Korean regime, which is a monstrous regime. It is the last really Stalinist regime in the whole world. It is a disgusting place, obviously.”

The show host did concede that “you’ve got to be honest about what it means to lead a country. It means killing people.”

Tucker continued, “Not on the scale the North Koreans do, but a lot of countries commit atrocities, including a number that we are closely allied with.”

The commentator reiterated that he “is not a relativist or anything” and that it is the “nature of life, and certainly the nature of power” having to choose between “the bad people and the worse people.”

Carlson added that “It takes a pretty hard man to keep a hold on power in a place like North Korea, so I think Trump respects his toughness.”

The Fox News host was spotted next to Trump administration officials during Trump’s visit to the DMZ.

Trump declared that “stepping across that line was a great honor.” He has even suggested inviting Kim to the White House.

Bill Kristol, a vociferous Never Trumper and staunch neoconservative, criticized Carlson’s comments on Twitter, pointing that Carlson is slated to be a keynote speaker at the National Conservatism Conference.

This conference is put on by the Edmund Burke Foundation and will feature notable speakers such as Missouri Senator Josh Hawley and Peter Thiel.

However, Kristol thinks that inviting Tucker to speak at this conference is a big mistake.

“I don’t know they realized they were signing up to be associated with this,” Kristol commented.

Never Trumpers like Erick Erickson and Kristol have thrown fits ever since Trump was elected.

Gone are days where American foreign policy serves the interests of the defense industry and foreign policy elites in D.C.

Under Trump, the U.S. is finally taking a new political course which places national interests at the forefront of all foreign policy decision-making.

What Trump is doing with North Korea is historic and represents a new chapter in international relations.
