Fox News host Tucker Carlson is very angry about the reaction a Houston restauranteur got after posing for a photo with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The restaurant has apologized for a social media post in which it said it was an “honor” to serve Sessions.
Carlson had Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo on for a confrontational interview in which he accused the network of not being a news network and instead trying to “pummel” the chef.
“I’m totally opposed to illegal immigration. I think our legal immigration should be lower because the country is getting too volatile. Those are my sincere views,” Carlson said. “Should I be allowed to eat Mexican food?”
Acevedo said that cultures should share and that Mexicans should share their food and culture with Americans.
“What do you mean, ‘their food?’ It’s American food! It’s American food!” Carlson said. “What do you think, you own tacos now, or something?” I feel like [I own them] they’re an American food and I’m going to keep eating them even though I agree with Jeff Sessions.”
Acevedo was stunned and said again that we should all celebrate each other’s cultures.
“What do you mean each other’s cultures? It’s an American food, it’s an American food—you’re not going to appropriate my culture,” Carlson said. “I’m from San Diego, man. Those are my tacos. Mine!”
Trump is ‘devoted to racial arson’ — and that’s why he took ‘a massive dump on the American dream’: Rick Wilson
Republican strategist Rick Wilson has penned a scathing column for the Daily Beast in which he dismantles President Donald Trump for telling four Democratic women of color to "go back" to their countries of origin, even though three of them were born in the United States.
Wilson begins his column by arguing that Trump has shown what happens when someone who is "devoted to political and racial arson" and is "beyond shame, reason, and dignity" gets elected to the most powerful office in the United States.
Beijing rebuffs Trump claims over economic slowdown
China on Tuesday rejected claims from US President Donald Trump that it is being forced to make a trade deal because of its slowing economy, as the two sides prepare for more talks.
Beijing and Washington have been locked in a stormy trade war that has seen them hit each other with tariffs covering more than $360 billion in two-way trade.
On Monday, China published data showing its quarterly growth had slipped to 6.2 percent -- the slowest in nearly 30 years.
After the publication of the trade figures, Trump tweeted: "This is why China wants to make a deal... with the U.S., and wishes it had not broken the original deal in the first place."
