Though he has often criticized the Massachusetts senator — and others in the 2020 Democratic presidential race — in the past, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson seems to be a fan of Elizabeth Warren’s new economic plan.

“On Tuesday, Warren released what she calls her plan for ‘economic patriotism,'” he told his audience this week. “Amazingly, that’s pretty much what it is — economic patriotism.”

Carlson went on to cite her proposal that “the U.S. government should buy American products when it can” as one aspect he found particularly redeeming.

“She says we need more workplace apprenticeship programs because four-year college degrees aren’t right for everyone,” he continued. “Well, that’s true.”

The rest of her plan reads “like Donald Trump at his best,” Carlson concluded.

“She says that taxpayers ought to benefit from the research and development that they pay for,” he added. “And yet she writes, ‘We often see American companies take that research and use it to manufacture products overseas, like Apple did with the iPhone. The companies get rich, and American taxpayers have subsidized the creation of low wage, foreign jobs.’ And so on.”
