The Fox News host Tucker Carlson again questioned why the US would side with Ukraine as Russia appears poised to invade the country.
"Why is it disloyal to side with Russia but loyal to side with Ukraine?" Carlson asked on Monday night. "They're both foreign countries that don't care anything about the United States. Kind of strange."
He said Ukraine was "strategically irrelevant to the United States. No rational person could defend a war with Russia over Ukraine. Nobody thinks a war like that would make America safer or stronger or more prosperous."

Carlson said the US needed to focus on its own economy instead, and that China benefited from the US having a conflict with Russia.
"The Chinese government is the only certain winner here," Carlson said.
The US, Ukraine, and other Western governments say Russia appears poised to invade Ukraine, and Ukraine says Russia has deployed more than 100,000 troops along the border. Russia says it doesn't intend to invade.
The Pentagon says it has 8,500 US troops on "heightened alert" over the Ukraine-Russia tensions.
Russia seized Ukrainian territory by force in 2014, annexing the Crimean peninsula, and calls the citizens of Russia and Ukraine "one people."
Russia also supports rebels in a war against Ukrainian forces in the eastern Donbas region. More than 13,000 people have died in that fighting.
