Fox News host Tucker Carlson caused heads to turn Wednesday night when he praised the economic plan of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., during his show's monologue.
"[Wednesday], Warren released what she's calling her 'plan for economic patriotism.' Amazingly, that's pretty much exactly what it is: economic patriotism," Carlson said.
Carlson then got into some of the nuts and bolts of Warren's plan, even comparing her to President Donald Trump.
"She says we need more workplace apprenticeship programs because four-year degrees aren't right for everyone," he said. "That's true. She says taxpayers ought to benefit from the research and development that they pay for. And yet, she writes, 'we often see American companies take that research and use it to manufacture products overseas, like Apple did with the iPhone. The companies get rich, and American taxpayers have subsidized the creation of low-wage foreign jobs.'
"She sounds like Donald Trump at his best."
