Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson and former Vice President Mike Pence said, “It’s not my concern” when Tucker asked, “What about the United States?”, referring to Ukraine-Russia war funding.
Tucker Carlson and Mike Pence Face Off
Tucker Carlson hosted the first presidential forum for the Republican primary in Iowa on Friday with Blaze Media at the Family Leadership Summit, in Des Moines, Iowa.
Hundreds packed the ballroom of the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center with more than 2,000 tickets sold, according to Family Leader President and CEO Bob Vander Plaats.
Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson confronted former Vice President Mike Pence about alleged anti-Christian discrimination in Ukraine.
Pence “Isn’t Concerned” About America?
Tucker Carlson asked former Vice President Mike Pence about his stances regarding US foreign policy with Ukraine.
“I believe that it is in the interests of the United States of America to continue to give the Ukrainian military the resources they need to repel the Russian invasion and restore their sovereignty,” Pence said, drawing boos from the crowd.
“You are stressed that the Ukrainians don’t have enough American tanks,” Carlson said to Pence during the interview. “Every city in the United States has become much worse over the past three years. Drive around. There’s not one city that’s gotten better in the United States, and it’s visible. Our economy has degraded the suicide rate has jumped public filth. And disorder and crime have exponentially increased. And yet, your concern is that the Ukrainians a country, most people can’t find out a map who’ve received 10s of billions of US tax dollars don’t have enough tanks. I think it’s a fair question to ask like, where’s the concern for the United States? In that?”
Pence promptly replied, “It’s not my concern,” adding, “I’ve heard that routine from you before, but that’s not my concern.” He then went on to talk about Joe Biden weakening the United States before briefly going into some of the policies he hopes to put in place.

The Pair Argue About How Clergy Are Being Handled In Ukraine
In another moment, Tucker stated Zelenskyy had “many clergy had been arrested” for having views they disagree with” in Ukraine.
They argued whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s government was respecting religious liberty.
Pence pushed back and claimed he asked religious leaders about the issue during his trip to the country in June and was told it was not happening. Tucker stated many arrests had been made who shouldn’t have been arrested based on their views.
Pence said he “won’t stand for it” if that is what’s happening.
Links To Clergy Being Arrested
Here are a few links to clergy and arrests or “unlawfulness” by clergy, in some way.
Pence claimed a Christian leader in Kyiv assured him that no Ukrainian is being persecuted for their religious beliefs.
If the United States is funding a good portion of the Ukraine-Russia event, and if they are actually arresting clergy like Orthodox and Catholic priests, does that mean, in a way, that the US is “ok” with these actions? If not, have they condemned it?
Tucker interviewed five candidates: Tim Scott, Nikki Haley, Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, and Mike Pence.
