Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Thursday that the prospective platform of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden moves “the Democratic Party more to the left than ever.”
“This agenda that you set here is not the agenda of a man who is trying to reach beyond his own party for support,” Hume told host Tucker Carlson. “This is a man who is simply trying to consolidate support within his own party, believing that is all he needs. And he could be right about it.”
WHAT IS ON THE BIDEN-SANDERS UNIT PLATFORM?
Earlier in the show, Carlson had broken down the proposed platform’s immigration reform package, which includes a “roadmap to citizenship” for those in the country illegally.
“Is it fair to say that no Republican could win a national election, at least for the foreseeable future?” Carlson asked, suggesting that the majority of those who became citizens would commit to supporting the Democratic Party.

“I think it is a reasonable assumption for the foreseeable future,” Hume said, adding that if such a measure is passed, “it would also mean, across the country, that many races, could be near or shaken or even go Republican. would do.
“So I think it’s a fair guess of what the consequences might be.”

Hume later criticized Trump for not being able to capitalize on the message of his speech in the bush. Rushmore last week.
“The pure drift to the left of this party and the leftism of this agenda would seem to present opportunities, if the Trump campaign and Trump himself can capitalize on it,” he said. “It remains to be seen whether he can or will, and whether he can stop talking about himself long enough to talk about something else and talk about his agenda and his message.”
