Tucker Carlson of Fox News had an interesting perspective on the reaction to Trump’s performance at the summit with Putin. He explained that the country that had the greatest influence on the United States’ elections is actually Mexico.
Carlson said that the country to our southern border is “packing our electorate,” while appearing on Fox News’ “The Five” on Monday night.
“It’s very hard at least for me, Tucker, to take that media response to this seriously. Since it’s always been at an incredible high pitch,” Greg Gutfeld, one of the show’s hosts said. “I’m wondering if this is because the media is blaming Putin for Hillary’s loss and they are constantly demanding their pound of flesh and nothing will ever be enough.”
“Of course they are trying to interfere in our affairs. They have a long time. Many countries do. Some more successfully than Russia like Mexico, which is routinely interfering in our elections by packing our electorate. I don’t understand why we need to believe that Russia is the primary issue of American political life,” Carlson responded.
This is the core of Tucker Carlson’s message: The United States’ immigration problem has allowed illegal immigrants to have a significant impact on our country’s elections.
Carlson focused on the meeting between President Trump and Putin in his comments on “The Five.” The controversial summit took place earlier on Monday.
It created a heated response from many politicians and media members who expressed concern for many of Trump’s comments during the press conference that followed the summit.
What do you think about Carlson’s comments? Is he right that too much emphasis has been placed on Russia’s involvement in our elections, and not enough has been given to how impactful Mexico is in our electoral process?
