Fox News host Tucker Carlson used his show Wednesday to respond to criticism that his comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) the previous night were racist.

Carlson faced backlash Wednesday after Omar and progressive groups called out his comments about the freshman representative’s story of becoming an elected official after coming to the U.S. as a Somali refugee. He said her history is “proof” that American immigration has “become dangerous to this country.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“They didn’t rebut our points, or even acknowledge them. They just tried to silence us. That’s how they operate. And of course they called us racist. On one level, that’s amusing, given how absurd the charge is,” Carlson said Wednesday night, referring to renewed calls for advertisers to pull out of Fox News segments.
