President Donald J. Trump was shocked and surprised when he heard that Tucker Carlson was no longer with Fox News.
In an interview on Newsmax yesterday, Trump told Greg Kelly that Tucker is a very good person, a very good man, and very talented. Trump also referenced Carlson’s high ratings and the fact that the media personality has been terrific to him, especially over the last year or so.
On Truth Social, Trump issued a Truth, stating, “The fact that Tucker Carlson will no longer be on FoxNews is a big blow to Cable News, and to America. Tucker was insightful, interesting, and ratings gold. He will be greatly missed!”
Carlson’s departure comes shortly after another popular voice left the network. Specifically, conservative commentator and “Unfiltered” host, Dan Bongino, left the network after the two were unable to come to terms on a new contract.
With the departure of two prominent and very popular conservative voices, Trump took to Truth and asked, “Oh’ no, not Dan Bongino also? Not only Tucker, but Dan. What is going on at FoxNews?”
Time will tell if the network decides to make any additional changes.
