Fox News host Tucker Carlson dismisses white supremacy as 'a hoax' - 2019-08-07
Coming just days after a Texas man allegedly killed 22 people in El Paso after posting a manifesto complaining of a "Hispanic invasion", the prime-time news star defended the president from criticisms of his rhetoric by disputing that Trump ever "endorsed white supremacy or came close to endorsing white supremacy".
"If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns, problems this country has, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably. It's actually not a real problem in America," Carlson told his audience on Tuesday night.
