During Monday’s broadcast, Tucker Carlson, a Fox News host and an honorary member of the Daily Caller News Foundation board, criticized President Joe Biden’s approach to the conflict in Ukraine, characterizing it as “reckless and self-destructive.” Carlson expressed concern over the growing alliance between Russia and China, suggesting that if the two countries were to collaborate, the United States would suffer a significant loss in power. He highlighted the fact that the economies of Russia and China have become increasingly interconnected since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine a year ago.
Over the last five years, Chinese expenditure on Russian products has risen by over 60%, with China now importing more coal from Russia than it has in the past half-decade. Meanwhile, Chinese shipments to Russia have grown by almost 30%, and Chinese car manufacturers have taken up the space left by Ford and Toyota’s exit from the Russian market. Additionally, in May, China surpassed all other nations to become the top purchaser of Russian oil. According to the Wall Street Journal, China has been raising exports of minerals and electronics that have potential military uses.
On Sunday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken remarked that China may have the capability to furnish “lethal support” to Russia. Nevertheless, an undisclosed Chinese official allegedly labeled Putin as “insane” and advised against China merely following Russia’s lead.
Tucker Carlson drew a comparison between the Biden administration’s proposal to provide an additional $500 million in military assistance to Ukraine and the circumstances at the US-Mexico border, as well as the aftermath of the recent train derailment carrying hazardous chemicals in East Palestine, Ohio. He showcased a video clip of locals describing the aftermath of the accident and the controlled burning of the chemicals, emphasizing the stark disparity between these events and the situation in Ukraine. Carlson contended that if the Biden family had been bribed eight years ago, the current circumstances would be dissimilar.
Overall, Carlson expressed his concern about Biden’s handling of the war in Ukraine, saying that it could lead to a dangerous alliance between Russia and China that would be detrimental to the United States. He also highlighted the contrast between the administration’s response to Ukraine and its response to other issues in the United States, such as the U.S.-Mexico border and the East Palestine train derailment.
