Tucker Carlson gave a grave warning on Wednesday saying that Democrats and some Republicans are preparing the public for the comeback of an interventionist foreign policy if Joe Biden is elected president.
The host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" spent the majority of the opening segment addressing the response to President Trump's announcement that 40% of U.S. troops deployed in Iraq will be pulled out by the end of this month.
"Too many thousands of American servicemen are deployed in dozens of countries around the world and have been for generations. In some cases, there may be a good reason they are there. In many other cases though, we just don't talk about it. You're not allowed to. In Washington, mindless interventionism is very much a bipartisan project. Both parties support it," said Carlson.
Carlson points out the fact that President Trump is the only person in Washington who does not agree with the idea of "the more troops we send overseas the better."
"He has been talking relentlessly about bringing the troops home from countries around the world," Carlson said, "and maybe more than any other single reason, talk like that makes official Washington hate Donald Trump. "
Carlson argues that Trump's announcement of bringing our troops home from Iraq should be cause for "widespread celebration."
"That means families united, Americans out of harm's way," he said. "But very few in Washington are celebrating. The press corps, including some people who should know better, are still telling you how much Donald Trump hates the troops and wants them to die -- the guy who's bringing them home."
Carlson wrapped up the program with a warning to voters about a new war "in the far away and strategically irrelevant nation of Syria" if the Democratic ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is elected.
He added about the Democrats' plans for war, "They aren't even trying to hide that, and they haven't been for a long time."
