Description: An advocate of former U.S. president Donald Trump, Carlson was described by Politico as "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 of Trump's key policy decisions, including the cancellation of a military strike against Iran in 2019. Carlson's remarks on race, immigration, and women – including slurs he said on air between 2006 and 2011 (which resurfaced in 2019) – have provoked accusations of racism and sexism, as well as advertiser boycotts of Tucker Carlson Tonight. As of April 2021, it was the most-watched cable news show in the United States.
