(RepublicanWire.org) – During his Saturday night at TP USA’s Americafest in Arizona, Fox News host Tucker Carlson responded perfectly when an audience member asked which Republican candidate he would support in the 2024 primary. Carlson commended both men, but said he’s “not endorsing anybody”. He then began to praise both DeSantis and Trump for all they’ve done for the country.
“I’m not endorsing anybody. I have no idea what’s going to happen in the Republican primary,” Carlson began.
“I spend a lot of time in Florida, and I think Ron DeSantis has done an unbelievable job. I don’t know DeSantis that well, but let me put it this way, people move to Florida because he’s the governor,” he said, adding that he’s never lived in a state where “people even knew who the governor was.”
“I’m so impressed by that,” he added.
Then he began talking about Trump, saying he’s “so grateful” he ran for president and won in 2016.
“I actually love Donald Trump, as a guy,” he continued. “He’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever talked to in my life”
“I think there are plenty of things to criticize about Trump, I mean, he’s a human being,” he added. “But the idea that he’s like personally some monster, is like absurd. It’s just another lie. They always tell the opposite of the truth. Trump is totally charming and engaging and fun and interesting,” Carlson continued.
“Trump expresses himself in this way that’s like completely original. But his insights into people, are like unbelievable. Now I don’t think he’s that great at hiring, just being honest,” he said.
“There’s so much I like about Trump, and fundamentally, I agree with him. On the big things. On immigration, foreign policy, I strongly agree with him,” Carlson concluded.
Polls have offered varying results on who voters actually support between the two should DeSantis join Trump in campaigning for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
