This week, some of the network’s most Trump-friendly personalities have started to push back against the president and his policies. That includes Tucker Carlson, one of the biggest Trump supporters in all media and a favorite of Trump himself. In an interview with the Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche, Carlson said Trump has failed to keep his “chief promises” to build a wall along the Mexican border and to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“And he hasn’t done any of those things,” Carlson said. “I’ve come to believe that Trump’s role is not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does.”
Tucker Carlson dug a bit deeper with his criticism, saying that Donald Trump is simply not capable of keeping his promises.
“I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus,” Carlson said. “I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him.”
