Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: I dont think hes capable, he said during an interview on Tuesday.
Urs Gehriger, an editor at Die Weltwoche, the countrys leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlsons new book, Ship of Fools, is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trumps first two years in office.
Carlson said he cannot stand Trumps self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson had just one word: No.

And yet hes been a more effective president than weve had in 20+ years
Can’t completely disagree. I get tired of his braggadocio and I think I ultimately hurts his cause
That seems like an odd stance based on the audience he’s trying to attract.
Tucker is a fool.
Put your bow tie back on, Poindexter. You’re time at the cool kids table just ended.
I am going to give Tucker the benefit of the doubt that this report is somehow out of context.
Gee why do I think that Tucker’s going to say this report is misleading and out of context?
On the other hand the criticisms are somewhat valid because trump tried to deal with the republicans in Congress and trusted them.
However it’s impossible to say that trump has not had success and delivered on his promises in many areas and I’m sure Tucker knows that and says it.
Maybe he’s being truthful regardless of any fallout.
That's a style thing. One doesn't always have to like the boss to respect him. Trump's results speak for themselves. Of course he won't get everything he claimed but he is making progress.
A head fake to the left is what I see. To boost his ratings. Tuck decimates lefties each night.
Oh I get it. Tuck is pulling for idiot chile Kaisich in 2020.
What the F is wrong with Tucker?!? Seriously, is he on LSD or something?
What a j@ck@ss!
Done with watching his show.
People act like Trump is the first guy to ever make self congrulatory statements. Remember Clinton bragging about how he fixed the "worst economy in 50 years", over and over and over? Or how Obama declared that his election was "the moment that the oceans stopped rising and the planet began to heal"?
I have every reason to suspect them of bias, spin, and hyperbole.
Tucker thinks its Trump fault because he doesnt have seasoned D.C. people around him to navigate the legislative politics of getting these things done but he should know better that no matter who was negotiating on behalf of Trump...the Paul Ryans and others ineffective Republican elite were only going to go so far as in passing Trumps agenda; Taxs cuts? Fine...Judges? Fine...everything else? No
Tucker ... we elected you to ... nothing.
Just stopping the climate change nonsense is more than anyone could even hope for. And he’s done that.
Tucker thinks he’s a clever boy.
His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare, and he hasnt done any of those things, Carlson said, adding that those goals were probably lost causes. Trump, he said, doesnt understand the system, and his own agencies dont support him.
He knows very little about the legislative process, hasnt learned anything, hasnt surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasnt done all the things you need to do, so its mostly his fault that he hasnt achieved those things, he added.
A full quote would be more informative.
I’ve never watched the Tucker show because I “cut the cord” years ago, but I’ve seen clips. I like Trump and I would vote for him again over any dem, but I agree he hasn’t kept some of his most significant promises: no repeal and replace; no wall; no lock her up. He has helped pull the curtain back on the corruption in DC and the media, but he has not drained the swamp.
