Fox News televised the first GOP Presidential Primary debate.
But there was one clear winner.
And Donald Trump just upstaged Fox News in one big way.
Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson dominated the social media conversation when their interview posted to X – the app formerly known as Twitter – racked up over 254 million views.

Trump went viral with answers about Jeffrey Epstein’s death and if he thought Democrats would try to assassinate him if the attempts to weaponize the government and wage lawfare against him failed.
But Trump also gave policy focused answers that showed he was looking past the Primary – where polls show him leading by 40 points – and on to a General Election rematch with Joe Biden.
Trump stuck to the themes that won him the 2016 election, telling Carlson his number one priority if he wins a second term is reversing Joe Biden’s disastrous open borders agenda that saw more illegal aliens pour into the country over the last three years than live in all but 19 states.
“Number one is the border and taking hundreds of thousands of criminals that have been allowed into our country and getting them out and bringing them back to their country. Guatemala, by the way, not only the four countries we think of as neighbors, all over the world,” Trump stated.
Trump described the enormity of the problem, as illegal aliens from 149 different nations have marched into the country thanks to Joe Biden rolling out the welcome mat.
“Last month, we had 149 countries represented. Think of it, we had 149 countries represented, Tucker, from places that many people never even heard of coming into our country, and they’re coming in from mental institutions and they’re coming in from prisons, they’re emptying out their prisons all over South America. They’re emptying out their mental institutions. Terrorists are pouring into our country, we have no idea,” Trump added.
Trump then reminded viewers of his success at the border compared to Biden.
“I had the strongest border in the history of our country, and I built almost 500 miles of wall,” Trump added.
The border is the biggest wedge issue for Republicans to use against Democrats.
Working-class voters are drifting away as the Democrat Party succumbs to the calls from financial and corporate elites to maintain a steady flow of cheap foreign labor to keep wages in America down.
And the more Donald Trump focuses on immigration, the more he will throw Joe Biden on the defensive.
