TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Every president since George Washington has faced political opposition, every single one of them. And that's the point of our system, democracies are built on debate and competing ideas. If you find a political leader who seems universally loved, what you have found is a dictatorship.

...

As a matter of principle, there is nothing wrong with opposing Donald Trump and his policies. Dissent is patriotic -- but that's not what has been happening for the past two and a half years. 

Nothing about the resistance has enhanced our democracy or made this country better -- just the opposite. The left's opposition to Trump has shredded democratic norms. Since the moment the last ballot was cast in 2016 they have worked to nullify the presidential election, they've imposed censorship on much of the country and more than anything they have sided with the permanent bureaucracy over voters.
