Conservative firebrand Tucker Carlson recently warned of the possibility of former President Donald Trump being assassinated.
Carlson’s comments came during his interview with Adam Carolla. The former Fox News Host noted that Trump has been subjected to impeachments, protests, and indictments.
Trump is currently facing four indictments, ranging from his alleged falsification of business records to his attempts at “overturning” the 2020 presidential election. Just recently, the former president had his mugshot taken in Fulton County, Georgia, where he was indicted by District Attorney Fani Willis over his concerns about the 2020 election in the state.

“We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously,” Carlson said, adding that “permanent Washington, both parties, have decided that there’s something about Trump” which is “so threatening” to them that they cannot endure him as president once more.
“It’s hard to overstate how bad this is,” Carlson continued. “I don’t know where it’s going. But there’s a collision that’s clearly imminent.”
Carlson also described Trump’s presidential challenger for 2024, President Joe Biden, as “senile, in a way that’s impossible to deny,” claiming that he is “not running the government.”
“I’ve never been this worried about anything as I am about where this is going,” Carlson added.
If re-elected, Biden, already the oldest president in U.S. history, would be 86 years old by the start of his second term.
Despite being attacked from all sides, Trump remains the most popular figure in the Republican Party. The former president is currently leading all GOP candidates for the 2024 presidential nomination by a wide margin in all polls, as the Blaze reported.
A Rasmussen Reports survey from Aug. 21, 2023, showed that 49% of Republicans would cast their vote for Trump in the GOP primaries. Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy came in a distant second place, having received just 11% support in the poll.
Polls show that the possibility of having a Trump-Biden rematch in 2024 is high, considering that both respective candidates are projected to win their party’s presidential nomination.
rump did not participate in the first GOP presidential debate held in Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Instead, the former president chose to opt out of the debates for an interview with Carlson, which garnered over 250 million views on X, formerly known as Twitter. The debates only received about 12 million views.
