In the interview posted onto X, the website formerly known as Twitter, at the same time as the Republican presidential debate Wednesday night, former President Donald Trump was boasting about his poll numbers when Tucker Carlson suddenly cut him off.
“If the protests didn’t work, and you got elected anyway; the impeachment didn’t work, twice; indictment is not working … If you chart it out, it’s an escalation, is what I’m saying. So what’s next, after trying to put you in prison for the rest of your life? That’s not working. Don’t they have to kill you now? Why wouldn’t they try to kill you, honestly?”
Trump didn’t respond directly. “I think the people of our country don’t get enough credit for how smart they are,” he said. “They get it. I got indicted four times. All trivial. Nonsense. Bullshit. It’s all bullshit.”

WATCH: Within the “first few minutes” of Tucker Carlson’s interview with Donald Trump, Carlson asked him about Jeffrey Epstein. @vaughnhillyard: “Tucker tried to correlate that by saying … ‘Could potentially they be trying to kill you next?’” pic.twitter.com/bhdTeIKPdt
