Fox News Fires Tucker Carlson. Donald Trump Shows Love..

Tucker Carlson

In an interview with Newsmax on Monday evening, former President Donald Trump stated that he was “shocked” by Tucker Carlson’s sudden departure from Fox News and joined several other GOP leaders in praising the controversial prime-time host.

Speaking in the interview, Trump said “I’m shocked…I’m surprised,” adding that he was simply finding out about the insight about Carlson’s exit not long before he plunked down for the interview.

Trump praised Carlson for his “terrific works…especially over the last year or so” as well as his “very good man” status and the former Fox host’s “high ratings.”

The former president indicated that he is unaware of the circumstances surrounding Carlson’s exit.” I don’t know if it was voluntary or if he was fired by someone, he said.

When the interviewer Kelly of Newsmax inferred that Carlson was fired — as some reports propose — Trump said “you don’t know if it’s a firing,” adding that the former host may have left “because he wasn’t being given his free rein.”

Trump responded that he was “surprised” by Fox’s recent $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems because he believed “that was the case that should easily be won.”

Trump continued his attacks on Ron DeSantis, his presumed primary rival for the Republican nomination in 2024, calling the Florida governor out for his lack of “loyalty” later in the interview.

Trump said “I’m a loyal person, maybe to a fault… Somebody gets you into office and then you’re telling people ‘Well I don’t know if I’ll run against the president.’”

Trump added that DeSantis, who hasn’t officially declared his intention to run for president, has “obviously not run a very good campaign…he’s getting crushed.” The former president also claimed credit for DeSantis’s 2018 election as governor.
