“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” Carlson said, adding that those goals were probably lost causes. Trump, he said, doesn’t understand the system, and his own agencies don’t support him.

“He knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do, so it’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things,”

Tucker went on to say he thought Trump was not capable to be POTUS

He didn’t really say Trump isn’t capable of being POTUS. He said he’s not capable of getting legislation pushed through. Which he’s actually gotten stuff through so clearly TC is wrong. Trump’s issue is that he never unified the Rep party. He might have not been able to do that no matter what, but clearly his efforts were pretty weak.

Who cares? Building the wall, defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing Obamacare doesn't rank very high as issues that most concern people. Otherwise, Carlson had some interesting things to say, such as this:

"Donald Trump, who is often seen as this world-changing figure is actually a symptom of something that precedes him that I sometimes wonder if he even understands which is this realignment. He served the purpose of bringing the middle class into the Republican Party, which had zero interest, no interest in representing them at all. Trump intuitive, he felt, he could smell that there was this large group of voters who had no one representing them and he brought them to the Republican side, but the realignment is still ongoing.

In other words, the Democratic Party used to represent the middle class, it no longer does, it now hates the middle class. The Republican Party which has never represented the middle class doesn't want to. That is the source of really all the confusion and the tension that you're seeing now. I do think, going forward the Republican Party will wake up and realize these are our voters and we're going to represent them whether we want it or not."

So, if Republicans continue to absolutely refuse to represent the middle class, they face defeat in 2020.
