Democrats have been trying to take down Trump for years now. But this is far beyond the pale.
And Donald Trump is losing his mind over this assassination threat.
With all of the attacks coming in from all sides, Trump has at least one ally in the media in the form of Tucker Carlson.
But Tucker is sounding the alarm on an even bigger attack that could be right around the corner.
Carlson is concerned that former President Donald Trump may be the target of an assassination attempt because his “popularity rose” after each indictment.
Carlson spoke on Monday night’s Adam Carolla Show, when Carolla questioned him if the powers that be would “let Trump be president?”
TUCKER ON TRUMP: “We are speeding towards assassination obviously. — They have decided that there's something about Trump that's so threatening to them, they just can't have it”

The former Fox News presenter expressed his concern, citing a succession of failed efforts to derail Trump dating back to 2016 — from two impeachments “on ridiculous pretenses” to four indictments filed against him in five months:
Look, they protested them. They called him names. He won anyway. They impeached him twice on ridiculous pretenses. They fabricated a lot about what happened on January 6 in order to impeach him again. It didn’t work. He came back, and then they indicted him. It didn’t work. He became more popular. Then they indicted him three more times, and every single time, his popularity rose.
“So if you begin with criticism, then you go to protests, then you go to impeachment, and now you go to the indictment, and none of them work, what’s next?” Carlson inquired.
“I mean, graph it out, man. We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously.”
He believes both parties in “permanent Washington… have decided that there’s something about Trump this that’s so threatening to them, they just can’t have it.”
“I mean, they’re putting him on trial in March of next year in the ‘J6 case,’ which basically consists of trying to send him to prison for the rest of his life for complaining about the last election. That’s literally what it is,” he added.
Carolla had earlier asked Carlson about Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s 2017 remark that then-President-elect Trump was “really dumb” for criticizing the intelligence community in a tweet.
“You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer ominously told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s been really dumb to do this.”
Carlson stated that Schumer’s remarks, which he is well-acquainted with, continue to “render [him] speechless.”
“I don’t know how you can, in the same sentence, say ‘I’m for democracy,’ and then say, ‘Actually, our country is run by a shadowy intel agency no one elected, and no one has oversight over.’ I mean, it’s not a democratic republic if the CIA can punish you as an elected President, for doing things that they don’t like.”
Carlson, the host of the eponymously named viral show Tucker on Twitter, went on to say that the CIA is an agency that reports to the executive branch and does not have the autonomy guaranteed by the Constitution.
“Our system is super simple. The people who are elected by the public have all the power,” he said.
“They have employees to whom they delegate their power to get things done, but those employees have no independent power at all and no independent legitimacy.”
