Carlson Addresses Mounting Concerns Over America’s Economic Future

Since his unceremonious forced exit from Fox News earlier this year, Tucker Carlson has maintained an influential voice through speeches and a hugely popular social media program. During a recent address in the nation’s capital, he opined on the fundamental economic hurdles Americans are currently facing due in large part to the policies of the Biden administration.

Describing the nation as “literally bankrupt” after years of runaway spending, Carlson noted that many people are struggling to afford basic necessities like food and shelter.

Meanwhile, the U.S. government continues shelling out billions of dollars to prop up foreign nations and distribute handouts to immigrants who crossed into the country illegally.

Furthermore, he criticized the White House’s shortsighted move to deplete America’s strategic oil reserve, which kept the price of fuel artificially lower ahead of last year’s election but will only exacerbate the inflation problem going forward.

“These are just real concerns,” Carlson added. “It doesn’t mean they’re the only concerns, but they can’t be completely ignored or you’re going to have a volatile situation on your hands.”

Instead of dealing with the root of these economic problems, however, he accused the government of attempting to compile “some East German surveillance data” and throw perceived enemies of the state behind bars, adding: “That doesn’t work long term.”
His remarks hinged on the belief that America should take care of its own needs before attempting to rescue other nations around the world.

“Let’s just start with pretending you care,” Carlson advised those currently in charge. “But you know what doesn’t work? Saying we’re going to spend $100 billion in other countries. I don’t care how virtuous the case those countries make is. And I don’t care how much I personally may agree or disagree with what those countries are doing.”

Calling those factors “immaterial,” he concluded: “The job — the moral duty — of the people running a country is to look out for the people in that country.”

As it currently stands, however, he shared what he described as a universal belief that “something bad is coming” and America’s leaders are not taking it seriously.

“Abrupt change is coming and that’s very, very disconcerting,” he asserted. “And so, rather than reassure people that, you know, we kind of got your back a little bit, [they say], ‘By the way, we’re going to spend $100 billion on other people.”
