Leading 2024 presidential candidate and 45th President Donald Trump’s interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson on X, formerly known as Twitter, which was released during Fox News’ first GOP presidential debate, has made history as the most watched interview ever recorded.
Within 15 hours of being posted, the interview has amassed over 204 million views and that number is continuing to climb.
Trump’s interview reaching over 200 million people is record-breaking because the title of most watched interview of all time used to be held by Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Michael Jackson in 1993, which reached 62.3 million views.
Oprah’s title of the most watched interview was recently taken by internet personality Andrew Tate’s interview with Tucker Carlson in July, which reached over 107 million views.
What’s even more interesting is that during Fox News’ GOP debate, many in the audience weren’t even paying attention to the debate. Many audience members were instead watching Trump’s rival interview on their phones.
Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, political consultant Alex Bruesewitz, and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) could all be seen watching Trump’s interview with Tucker on their phones instead of the debate.
Trump told Tucker during the interview, “Do I sit there for an hour or two hours…and get harassed by people who shouldn't even be running for president?”
Trump is also leading in all polls, as well! On Monday, a new poll from Premise Data showed leading 2024 presidential candidate and 45th President Donald Trump not only beating all Republican primary opponents by a landslide but President Joe Biden as well.
The poll surveyed 1,651 registered voters from August 17 to 21 and revealed Trump to be winning the Republican primary with 60 percent, 44 points above Absentee Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) minor 16 percent.
Where Trump especially and most importantly excelled against President Joe Biden.
In a head-to-head matchup between Trump and Biden, Trump won with 43 percent of the vote, while Biden only received 38 percent, a five-point victory for Trump.
In a matchup between DeSantis and Biden, Biden won with 37 percent, while DeSantis only received 34 percent, a three percent victory for Biden.
