“The truth is that Washington policies, not unstoppable market forces, are a key driver of the problems American workers face,” Carlson said, continuing to read an extended monologue on the topic before revealing it was an excerpt from a policy proposal by Warren.

“From our trade agreements to our tax code, we have encouraged companies to invest abroad, ship jobs overseas and keep wages low,” Carlson continued.


"Nobody you voted for said that or would ever say it," Carlson said, adding that "many of Warren’s policy prescriptions make obvious sense," such as the federal government buying U.S.-made products whenever possible and scaling up apprenticeship programs.

Carlson, despite his agreement with Warren’s economic proposals, called her a “race-hustling, gun-grabbing abortion extremist" and lamented the lack of “a caucus that represents where most Americans actually are: nationalist on economics, fairly traditional on the social issues.”

Carlson’s monologue did not address a green manufacturing plan Warren released the same day, which included spending $400 billion over a decade on a “Green Apollo” program to address clean energy research and development while promoting its use in the U.S. and abroad.

This report was corrected Thursday at 8:05 a.m. to reflect that Carlson was just speaking about Warren's general economic proposals.
