Trump Sidelines GOP Debate and Chooses Controversial Carlson Over Conservative Cable! – Is He the Only Candidate Who Can Beat Biden?

Donald Trump is set to join forces with former top Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson instead of participating in the upcoming GOP presidential debate, intensifying his feud with the conservative cable channel. 

Debate-Night Counterprogramming

According to sources briefed on the matter, Trump plans to conduct an online interview with Carlson on the same night as the debate, which The New York Times describes as a form of “debate-night counterprogramming.”

Trump’s decision not to attend the debate has been long anticipated, and he has refused to sign the RNC-required pledge to support the chosen nominee of Republican primary voters.

This pledge is a prerequisite for candidates to participate in the debate, a rule implemented by RNC Chair Rona McDaniel, who is aligned with Trump.

Fox News has become embroiled not just with Trump but also with Carlson, who remains under contract and continues to receive compensation from Fox despite having his show removed from the air.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Cited White Supremacist Platforms Like the Neo-Nazi Stormfront

Carlson received a cease-and-desist letter from Fox after airing videos on a platform known as X (formerly Twitter).

Carlson has been criticized for promoting white nationalist and supremacist ideologies, including the “great-replacement theory.”

A recent in-depth investigation by The New York Times revealed that his program, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” at times cited white supremacist platforms like the neo-Nazi Stormfront.

Trump hinted at his debate absence on Thursday, asserting that his high intelligence and poll numbers make it unnecessary for him to participate.

“ALL AMERICANS Have Been Clamoring for a President of Extremely High Intelligence”

He wrote, “Many people are asking whether or not I will be doing the DEBATES. ALL AMERICANS have been clamoring for a President of extremely High Intelligence. As everyone is aware, my Poll numbers, over a ‘wonderful’ field of Republican candidates, are extraordinary.”

He continued,  “In fact, I am leading the runner-up, whoever that may now be, by more than 50 Points. Reagan didn’t do it, and neither did others. People know my Record, one of the BEST EVER, so why would I Debate? I’M YOUR MAN. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

He also criticized Fox News for not showcasing polls where he leads against Biden, and he accused the network of using unfavorable images of him.

Trump complained, “Why doesn’t Fox and Friends show all of the Polls where I am beating Biden, by a lot. They just won’t do it!”

Biden Is The “WORST ‘P’ EVER.”

He continues, “They think they are getting away with something, they’re not. Just like 2016 all over again…And then they want me to debate!”

Trump reiterated that he is the only candidate capable of decisively beating Joe Biden, whom he called the “WORST ‘P’ EVER.”

During the discovery process in the lawsuit between Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems, it was revealed that Carlson had privately referred to Trump as “demonic,” a “destroyer,” and expressed strong disdain towards him.
