Wikipedia: Tucker Carlson, Father Coughlin redux:
An advocate of U.S. president Donald Trump, Carlson has been described by Politicoas “perhaps the highest-profile proponent of ‘Trumpism‘ and willing to criticize Trump if he strayed from it.”[ He is also said to have influenced some key policy decisions by Trump. As of 2020, Tucker Carlson Tonight is the most-watched cable news show in the United States. Carlson’s controversial statements on race, immigration and women have led to advertiser boycotts against the show.
A vocal opponent of progressivism, Carlson has been called a nationalist.Originally a proponent of libertarian economic policy and a supporter of Ron Paul, Carlson would come to criticize the ideology as being “controlled by the banks” and became an active adherer to protectionism. He has also espoused anti-interventionalist views, renouncing his initial support of the Iraq War the year after it was declared.[“
