Tucker Carlson: US leaders have sold out America to China
Many of America’s most influential leaders have betrayed their country for pay, Tucker Carlson said in a scathing segment.
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 20, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Many of America’s most influential leaders have betrayed their country for pay, Tucker Carlson said in a scathing segment earlier this week.
The Fox host said communist China is becoming a “dangerous enemy” and the reason for many of the chief problems developing the U.S. today.
“China is no longer simply an economic rival of the United States; it’s becoming a dangerous enemy,” Carlson said.
“But instead of protecting us from this threat, an existential one, our leadership class collaborates with the other side,” he continued.
“Why do they do that? Simple. They’re getting rich from it.”
Carlson named leaders from sports, politics, academia, and business to illustrate examples of influential Americans willing to throw American values and freedoms under the bus for Chinese cash. His first examples were Daryl Morey, the general manager of the National Basketball Association, and star basketball player LeBron James.
“NBA general manager Daryl Morey, you’ll remember, wrote a tweet supporting pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, and in the resulting backlash, the NBA and Morey both apologized for daring to criticize China’s fascist regime,” Carlson said.
“And then LeBron James weighed in and explained to us that, actually, freedom of speech in America is vastly overrated.”
