After help demands, Tucker Carlson instructs Zelensky to "go away"

(MENAFN) Ukraine's "Christmas list" of demands for further US help should be refused by Congress, according to renowned conservative TV commentator Tucker Carlson, who blasted President Vladimir Zelensky for his newest request for tens of billions of dollars to keep his government afloat.

Expressing amid his Thursday show on Fox News, the top-rated commentator discharged the Ukrainian president as a “celebrity-endorsed dictator of the most corrupt nation in Europe.”

“What? Some uppity foreigners in a T-shirt demanding money for his ‘critical economic needs’? We have critical economic needs too, buddy. Who are you, troll? Go away!” Carlson stated, in response to the request. He enquired the US leadership if the Ukrainian leader had a claim on the country’s treasury. 

On Wednesday, Zelensky requested $55 billion in IMF and World Bank help, claiming the need to reconstruct his nation following Russian bombings and keep his deficit-running government afloat. Previously, Washington granted sovereign credit guarantees to aid Kiev's borrowing.
