President Donald Trump was arraigned, again, this Tuesday, per RSBN. While his previous charges have led voters to question the justice system, the new indictment is being pushed by the federal government.

Now that Tucker Carlson has launched his new show on Twitter, he is free to discuss controversial political issues he would not have been able to on Fox.

After the indictment, he posted his thoughts to Twitter, calling out the Washington “neocons,” and pinpointing the moment President Trump made so many enemies of “permanent Washington.” 

Tucker Carlson noted, “the day that Donald Trump made a blood enemy of the largest and most powerful organization in human history, which would be the federal government.” He said this occurred on Feb. 16, 2016, when then-presidential candidate Donald Trump called out the political war establishment. 

He then played a clip of what President Trump said at the Republican candidate debate in Greenville, South Carolina. Trump stated, “We should have never been in Iraq. We have destabilized the middle east. They lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction. There were none, and they knew there were none!”

Carlson described how many in Washington “hated Donald Trump for exposing them.”

He called out Joe Biden for “using law enforcement to lock up his chief rival,” and noted how this move is an act of ideological warfare on the American people who agree with President Trump. 

In 2022, Biden began vilifying Trump supporters. In August of 2022, he made a speech at a Democratic National Committee grassroots rally urging voters to support his politics for the midterm elections. He said: “Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice: to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate, and division.”

He did not describe specific incidents of violence, hate, or division caused by the MAGA movement.

Then, in September 2022, he made an anti-MAGA speech with a blood-red backdrop and military presence standing by in the background, which received harsh criticisms from voters, according to the Washington Examiner.

Now, President Trump’s popularity is increasing and the Biden administration is facing a tough 2024 election. Tucker Carlson pointed this out along with the administration’s egregious spending. “The federal government spent six and a half trillion dollars last year. That’s more than any government has ever spent ever,” said Carlson.

The former Fox host also noted how the nation’s infrastructure is crumbling and people are dying of drug addiction despite so many taxpayer dollars being spent. He brought up the endless funding for the war in Ukraine and how the American people haven’t gotten a say in that spending. 

He then reminded Americans that President Trump “dissents from Washington’s long-standing pointless war agenda,” and how that has made him the main enemy of many within the federal government. 

Tucker Carlson concluded by stating, “In this life, we don’t get to choose our martyrs.”
