The jig is up for the Koch brothers, who will be working against Trump in 2020.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson hammered the billionaire Koch brothers on his show Wednesday night for their cosmopolitan values, their support of liberal globalist public policy, and their utter contempt for the working class of America.
Carlson mentioned that the Koch Bros are “libertarian ideologues” whose policy platform has little in common with conservatives at all, noting that their advocacy of open borders even makes socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) look conservative by comparison.
The Koch Bros and their functionaries have been lobbying relentlessly to make sure that Trump’s ‘America First’ immigration policies are undermined for the benefit of their corporate profit margins. Carlson pointed out that their efforts have sadly been very effective as the borders are “more porous than ever.”
Carlson noted that the Kochs’ lobbying has also resulted in more criminals being let back onto the streets.
He also pointed out that the Kochs lobby to cut entitlements, keep prescription drug prices higher for consumers, slash taxes for the richest one percent, and protect usurious banking practices.
The Kochs recently announced that their network will not be giving a dime to President Trump’s re-election efforts in 2020, instead opting to support Democrats and issue-based groups opposing Trump’s core agenda.
“We expect policymakers to unite people and build coalitions. We’re committed to forging a new way forward with political discourse,” said Emily Seidel, CEO of the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity. “We’re excited for how this new approach will help policymakers work together.”
Without having the courage to mention Trump by name, Seidel made it clear that her astroturfed grassroots organization is focusing on opposing the President and all that he stands for.
“If candidates engage in personal, ad hominem attacks and other divisive tactics during their election, it makes it difficult for them to work productively with others after the election,” Seidel wrote in a recent memo to AFP staff and activists.
“One of the biggest challenges to this approach is that those who work to lead nonpartisan coalitions are threatened by people in both parties who prize partisanship over policy outcomes. This makes it difficult for policymakers who want to do what’s best for the country to stick their necks out,” she added.
President Trump is onto the Koch Bros and their subversive agenda to prevent MAGA:
And thanks to Carlson’s blistering report, more people will be onto the sinister machinations of the Kochs than ever before.
