HARRIS FAULKNER (HOST): Pete, we do know, at least from reports, that the president will shift in something, in terms of bringing Ukraine into his comments at the State of the Union tomorrow night.
PETE HEGSETH (FOX & FRIENDS CO-HOST): Yeah, he will. The problem is, and [Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY)] is right. I mean, I don't envy the White House speech writer whose task it is to take the last year and a half and try to make it look rosy. I mean, look at that AP headline. That correctly depicts the state of America both at home and abroad. If he wants to talk about what’s happening in Ukraine, what will he say other than the things we told you would deter it didn't work? If he wants to talk about Afghanistan, he’ll say what he said in the past, which is it was going to be this way no matter what, no matter who ended the war. Which, anyone who had been there, or who had seen it, knew that's not true. It certainly didn't have to end that way.
And then, here at home, he's -- what Lee Zeldin said is right. And, I was at CPAC this weekend talking to conservatives and young people, and they said yes, what is happening in Ukraine is important. But it pales in comparison to the crime I see in my streets, to the wokeness I see in my culture, to the inflation I see at my pocket book, to the real border I care about, which is the southern border, which is wide open. On every single issue, the quality of life of average Americans has gone down.
