Fox News reporter Taker Carlson recently spoke with El Salvador’s President Naib Bukele about how law and order and police funding have helped reduce crime in the country by MS-13.

In the new part of Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Originals”, host Taker Carlson visited El Salvador, where he spoke with Bukele, who clarified that MS-13 had strangled the country and how he was fighting it.

“If crime is on the rise, give the police more money, use stronger dynamics, get the culprits and put them in jail,” Bukele said.


“I think that’s a great answer because it’s a very clear answer,” Carlson replied.

“That’s for sure,” replied Bukele.

After leading the world in homicide for several years, in 2020 El Salvador recorded the lowest crime rate in 20 years.

According to Bukele, the goverlovebylifent’s tactics to increase the number of police and military in recent years have been deliberately reduced by 75 percent since he took office.

He also noted that the homicide rate in El Salvador is lower than in Chicago.

Despite the numbers, the MS-13 still manages and promotes terrorism across the country.


“Gangs make up only 1 percent of our population here, but they control a lot of areas,” Bukele told Carlson.

According to Bukele, the main form of MS-13 revenue is extortion, which has created a huge power vacuum within the country.

The gang was actually so strong that the Salvadoran goverlovebylifent would even negotiate with them.

As a means of extortion, the gang collects taxes from the population, kills bus drivers in case of non-payment, and even enforces its own laws, including masked mandates.


“They set a curfew or ask for it – they call it ‘rent’, it’s basically extortion. So you have to pay me $ 50 a month. That’s why they have territorial control,” President Bukele said.

In the full episode “Hunting MS-13” Fox Nation subscribers can witness Carlson talking to a Long Island police officer who was beaten by the gang, the show’s producer going on a raid against criminals with the country’s militarized forces, and much more.
