Tucker Carlson delivered a strong speech at the Daily Caller News Foundation Gala on Tuesday, cautioning that the path America is on might lead to its potential decline.
“If something really dramatic in your country happens — like young people can’t, I don’t know, get married, you know, or buy houses or have any hope for a future that approaches, you know, the middle class upbringing they had — then you’ve got a huge problem and someone should be responding to that,” Carlson said.
“And if your economy is like on the brink of collapse, you know, if your country is literally bankrupt, I hope someone would say that.”
“Or how about this? Let’s start with pretending you care. But you know what doesn’t work? Saying we’re going to spend $100 billion in other countries,” Carlson pointed out.

During his address, Carlson referenced the significant financial support the U.S. has extended overseas, particularly to the Ukraine-Russia conflict. Based on a report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Biden administration and Congress have already contributed $113 billion in aid to Ukraine.
“And I don’t care how virtuous the case those countries make is, and I don’t care how much I personally may agree or disagree with what those countries are doing — that is immaterial. The job, the moral duty of the people running a country is to look out for the people in that country, period.”
“When every person, 350 million Americans, everyone regardless of political affiliation can feel that something bad’s coming. Everybody knows that,” Carlson said. “I mean, if you’ve been to church once in the last year, have you thought about the end times recently? Yes, you have … because you can feel that abrupt change is coming and that’s very disconcerting.”
Recently, the administration approached Congress with a request to approve an aid package nearing $106 billion. Most of this funding is intended for Ukraine, with the remaining amount divided among Israel, the Indo-Pacific region, and the U.S. border, as reported by Reuters.
Yet, this proposal faced opposition from House Republicans. Representative Mike Garcia of California critiqued the absence of a clear strategy for Ukraine and remarked that there seemed to be “no exit” from the conflict.
Carlson further delved into the U.S. border issue, emphasizing the unprecedented number of migrants making unauthorized entries into the country.
“At the very same moment that American society is more fractured — our social fabric is in tatters and we’ve let in millions upon millions of people who have no affinity for the United States, who are merely here for the economic benefits,” Carlson continued. “Which by the way is not all bad — and I think a lot of them are good people, I’m not attacking them. I’m merely saying their addition does not make us a more cohesive country, it makes it a far less cohesive country.”
Arrests at the southern border have surged by over 26%, leading to the detention of more than 15,000 individuals with criminal backgrounds in the 2023 fiscal year, based on federal statistics.
