Former Presidential Candidate Gives Trump Advice He Will Likely Reject
Mike Huckabee, the former Governor of Arkansas and GOP presidential candidate wants President Trump to stop talking about Hunter Biden.
But Trump will not likely heed the advice.
According to Town Hall:
On “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee gave President Trump some advice he will likely decline. He wants the president to stop talking about how Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter sat on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company while he was vice president and overseeing U.S. relations with Ukraine.
“It is a mistake” to keep bringing up the Hunter Biden scandal, Huckabee explained, “Because most people don’t understand it, it’s too complicated. And frankly, it doesn’t matter to them.”
Instead, Huckabee wants Trump to focus on issues that do matter, such as the economy, safety and security. Fox News anchor Sandra Smith later asked another guest, Republican pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson, about Huckabee’s advice, and she agreed that in these last two weeks before the election, Trump should be spending “every single second” talking about the economy.
Trump 2020 National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley says he’s friends with Huckabee. He even considers him a “second father.” But he maintained that the former governor is way off base here.
Gidley would not confirm if Trump would bring up the corruption on the debate stage on Thursday.
