Tucker Carlson’s interview with President Trump on X formerly known as Twitter, absolutely smashed the GOP debate on Fox News.

In less than 24 hours, Tucker’s interview with Trump already has almost 200 million views.

From The Hill:

President Trump lashed out at a number of his favorite targets Wednesday night during an interview with ex-Fox News host Tucker Carlson meant to compete with the first GOP presidential debate that the 2024 GOP front-runner skipped.

Trump criticized Fox News, the network televising the debate, rival candidate Chris Christie and his former Attorney General Bill Barr during the 46-minute interview that was pre-taped at Trump’s Bedminster, N.J., property. Here are some of the highlights.

Trump tells Carlson he should not have been fired by Fox
The former president blasted Fox for taking Carlson off the air in April, saying it was a mistake by the network to oust its at the time top-rated host.

“I think it was a terrible move getting rid of you,” Trump told the former host. “You’re No. 1 on television and all of a sudden we’re doing this interview, but we’ll get bigger ratings doing this crazy forum that you’re using than probably the debate.”

Since being fired by Fox, Carlson, who remains under contract with the network, has started a new version of his popular prime-time show on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
