This week, during the Family Leadership Summit in the Iowa town of Des Moines, Tucker Carlson will debate the presidential candidates live on stage, which could ignite some fireworks.
This week, BlazeTV will be broadcasting coverage of the “Midwest’s biggest gathering of Christians pursuing changes in culture in the family, church, the government, and a lot more,” with Tucker Carlson conducting presidential candidate interviews.
The former Fox News Channel presenter has a reputation for being frank and has already given tense interviews to some of this year’s summit attendees. In the lead-up to the 2024 race, his one-on-one onstage interviews with presidential contenders at this year’s summit might prove to be especially tense.
At the summit the year before, Tucker was insistent about voters pushing future political leaders’ feet onto the fire in a glimpse of what might be ahead for viewers.
“The one thing that matters most in the entire world is, in terms of material things, completely unconnected to your life or the lives of any of the additional 350 million individuals who live here, said Carlson amid a speech given at the 2022 FAMiLY Leadership Summit. As long as you continue to have leaders, leaders you choose to vote for, those whose campaigns that you contribute to, who are able to stare directly into cameras and declare that, this is a major problem,” Carlson said.
Carlson publicly expressed critical views of conservative political personalities on Fox News before departing, frequently igniting the ire of some Republican fans.
“Nikki Haley is an upstanding member of the most protected class of all: upper-class, liberal white women with cutting-edge political opinions.” In February, Carlson remarked on former gov. Nikki Haley, “She might be vying to be the GOP nominee, but she is basically indistinguishable when compared to the neoliberal donor base that supports the Democratic Party.”
Haley is one of the attendees at this year’s conference who has been confirmed.
“Nikki Haley thinks that there is widespread racial guilt. She believes that Ukraine’s boundaries are more crucial than ours. She thinks identity politics will be our future,” Carlson added of the former governor of South Carolina.
The United States’ role in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is one topic that will almost certainly come up during the summit. While several of the Republican candidates he will be speaking with at the summit look to be overtly hawkish, Carlson has made it clear that he opposes the war.
