He's pissed about the immigration problem, I share his frustration and pessimism.

He's given up on the idea that anything can be done. Republicans had the chance and didn't do ****, in fact they saw to it that nothing got done.

I'm not giving up that fast since there is nothing left to lose by waiting to see if Trump does something drastic in the next two years to make something happen.

Carlson is obviously a defeatist and it's there in his own words in that transcript I put up.

Tucker is right to be frustrated as many of us with border security but it's more on congress and the senate which were both led by Pubs. They should have supported Trump a lot more

Meh. Trump has already exceeded my expectations. I certainly hope he doesn't give up in disgust.

The title is disingenuous - Huffpost. Tucker is just stating his opinion and frustration on the stagnation of the border wall, Obamacare, and defunding Planned Parenthood (let's add PBS to that list). The left just can't understand that conservatives are not sheep blindly falling in line with a group like they do with the democrats so they take Tuckers disagreement as "turning on the president."

One man can't do it all. The president assigns a project and expects it to be done. Seems like this doesn't work with the Republican congress. President Trump had to first concentrate on national security and Korea. Maybe Trump could have gotten the other things done if the corrupt establishment wasn't taking away his focus by the politically driven Russian investigation.

I don’t think he’s capable,” Carlson explained. “I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. He’s not going to do that.”

I voted for President Tump of the Supreme Court Picks. Anything elese is icing on the cake. I did not foresee the total melt down of Progressive Liberals and their MSM. That was a YUGE! bonus.

Tucker has at times not agreed with President Trump on his policies and his comments. I think they call that freedom of speech

Based on what metrics? Because by all the empirical ones, he's a great president.

Just imagine what could be accomplished if the republican party worked as it should. Anyone else notice more was accomplished in two year under Trump that was accomplished in eight years under Obama? Problem is Trump is not playing politics they way the career elites want to play, he is actually trying to accomplish things in a reasonable amount of time. It is absolute bullshit that politicians on either side are trying to stop or slow walking the securing of Americas border. Once again these feckless elites seem to have forgotten who they work for. 2020 is another chance to remind them.

The next two years are going to be interesting, I hope Trump Veto's every spending bill that comes across his desk until they fund the wall.

Tough to complete an agenda of helping the American people improve their lives when the left is in looney, out of control resistance mode and the right is quietly supporting the left to allow them to get re-elected.

I have reached the point where I do not believe that the system cannot be fixed where it will work for us.

THAT is where Trump needs outright FIRE about 2/3 of the Fed workforce in DC region.....clean house, lockdown, same with all .gov spending except for .mil obviously......and send the .mil in full force with machine gun nests to take care of the border once and for all......I have already posted about how to take care of the sneaking in routs.....as for drug running submarines....kill them at the harbors they leave/load from......
