WATCH: Kinzinger Says Tucker Carlson Plays a Big Role in Americans Defending Russia

Before Donald Trump took office, most Americans knew that Vladimir Putin was not a friend to America. And GOP lawmakers certainly did too. But Trump was so complimentary of Putin that his supporters didn’t know where to stand.

Tucker Carlson has aggressively pushed the same message as Trump. And according to Adam Kinzinger, Carlson is leading Americans to root for Russia over Ukraine.

The Illinois Republican made the comments during Sunday’s episode of Meet the Press. He told host Margaret Brennan:

“I think it’s a couple of things. Number one: it could be some naïveté on foreign policy, not in Tucker’s case. I think it’s an affection for authoritarianism. And I think Vladimir Putin has done a decent job of engaging in culture battles and culture war, and he is seen as the person defending, in essence, the culture of the past. And so it’s very frightening. And by the way, you know, Ukraine is not sure. Already, one third of the country of Georgia is occupied by Russia. Nobody’s going to stop them from going into the rest of that. Then you have the Baltics, you have the Balkans that they’re interfering in. This is a frightening moment, and any Republican that has affection for Vladimir Putin has no understanding of what our party stands for or what out country stands for.”
