Tucker Carlson on Trump’s ‘Shithole’ Comment: ‘Trump Said Something That Almost Every Single Person in America Actually Agrees With’

Thursday on his Fox News Channel show, Tucker Carlson reacted to President Donald Trump’s reported reference to “shithole countries” and the criticism the president has received in response.

Carlson defended Trump, saying the comments are something “that almost every single person in America agrees with.”

Partial transcript as follows:

Today, as you doubtless heard, during immigration talks, President Trump said something that almost every single person in America actually agrees with.

An awful lot of immigrants come to this country from places that aren’t very nice. Those places are dangerous, they’re dirty, they’re corrupt and they’re poor, and that’s the main reason those immigrants are trying to come here and you would, too, if you live there.

President Trump asked why America doesn’t receive immigrants from places you might want to visit on vacation. Why aren’t we getting more people from Norway, he said, which by almost any measure, including the UN’s measures, is the most developed and richest country in the world.

While saying this, Trump used an expletive, and that’s not surprising either since he uses them all the time and was speaking privately. And yet, for some reason, virtually, everyone in Washington, New York and LA considered this a major, major event. Why is that?

Trump has since hinted he did not use such “tough language” during his immigration reform meeting.

      brenda he may or may not have used those words, is that really the point??? the thought is exactly what tucker and millions of us are thinking. how many more years do we continue to feed, clothe & house these people. someday this free ride has toooooooooo end. it’s an endless bleed on our country. send all these immigration lawyers from here making millions to figure out another profession in which to fill their pockets. all for lefty corrupt votes. they all appear on tv like they representing penniless paupers. when in fact they represent the very wealthy. this whole illegal drama is a lefty vote scam.

      President Trump didn’t say the word they are lying. Dick Durban told that lie about the President. Tom Cotton and another Senator were in the meeting and both said that they don’t remember President saying that and they told what he really said. We have such hateful liberals in Congress and Dick Durban should be voted out. All these liberals who keep winning elections are probably doing it by voter fraud and every state should be check no only mid term elections but all elections for voter fraud.

        I agree with what you say about fraud! Especially in the elections where there is a large mass of voters, more than there are people in the county!

    If “The Donald” said what The Dick said he said then it was not a gentle statement and could have been better said differently. There is a lot to learn, though, from it and there is a reason that the lessons needed are being missed. The reason is that people are not ready to be presenting their opinions in public. Dick, has shown an example of how immature our so-called representatives are and the sort-of-professionals in the communication businesses are also revealing that they are not ready to be quoted either. I am not including Tucker Carlson in this category. The “Racist” term is being miss-applied to so many circumstances that it has lost all meaning and has taken on the same aura as the “nigger” word. You know the “N” word. So charged we can still think it and communicate it but we can’t say it. My God, think what that would do to the delicate inner workings of the other Dicks in the otherwise protected confines of the emotionally Walled area called “The District of Columbia.” The wall there is almost impenetrable because it is built with the inhabitant’s net worths; pronounced in hushed tones like “The Vatican” where truth, especially about sex, is as taboo as at the recently burned house in Chappaqua. We are becoming a global cesspool of corrupt, immorally represented children. Growing up requires something more than time and the other attributes needed for the process are being squelched by the fact that governments have taken control of education and communication and have turned those commodities into training and obfuscation. Josep Goebbels died too soon! Ted

    Please look at what President Trump has Accomplished for Americans! Democrats has nothing to show America as to Achievements. Their game is a mis-direction to steer us away from the Truth about them and their Corruption. God works in mysterious ways!

    If President Trump said the comment being reported, so what. Maybe a politically incorrect name, but none the less TRUTH. Stop the constant attacks on this man. I wish as mant people attacked other presidents, we didnt like, the same way. But that wouldn’t happen because conservatives have respect.

    There are over 3 billion poor people in the world and most of them are from Africa! America cannot solve the poor problem in the world but Democrats want us to believe that America can! That is plain BS. I believe we should stop all immigration for about two years so we can get a grip on the illegal immigration coming into America!

      Sal, I like that idea! I wish we could stop immigration for a few years and make stricter vetting of any race!

    My problem with this is the condition Hatai is in,even if Trump called it a shithole from the pictures it looks like it is, now back when all the money was being poured into Hatai from the US and the donations that they didn’t get because of the clintons and their cronies stealing it it should least have been some rebuilding and developing instead there is so much poverty and they are wanting to infiltrate the US, everything Trump does has got to be twisted and called racist by the lefts they are constantly and are going to try and cause chaos they are all backed up y the deepstate government creating resistance to Trump on every level.

    The term President Trump supposedly used is mild to what one hears every day of the week. I can’t believe the total hypocrisy of people who say much worse than “shit hole” all the time.We have become a nation of hypocrites and we wear the mask of morality only when it suits us. Because of the socialist agenda that permeates this country, truth, morality and integrity have fallen in the street.
    The “shit hole” lays in Washington D.C. and the stink is unbearable.
