Sen. Tammy Duckworth Says Trump Shouldn't Be President for 'Another 4 Minutes' Let Alone 4 More Years

Fox News host Tucker Carlson faced backlash in July after he questioned Duckworth's patriotism and called her a "moron" after the Iraq War veteran told CNN that she believes it's worth "having a national dialogue" about possibly removing a statue of former President George Washington. (Washington owned hundreds of slaves, according to the National Archives.)

Duckworth's initial remarks came amid nationwide protests over racial injustice this summer, which also included the removal and renaming of a number of monuments previously in honor of Confederate military men and American figures who owned slaves.

After Carlson's comments drew bipartisan criticism, Duckworth, a Purple Heart recipient, pointed out on social media that her family's military service dates back to the American Revolution.

Previously, Trump's campaign accused Duckworth of using "her military service to deflect from her support for the left-wing campaign to villainize America's founding," according to CNN.

In contrast, Biden called Carlson's comments "disgusting" and "sickening," according to the New York Times.
