Mike Huckabee on Voting for Trump: ‘If You’re Pro-Life, You Don’t Have a Choice’

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee tried to make the case for President Donald Trump’s reelection on Monday. Speaking to Fox & Friends, Huckabee argued that wedge issues like abortion would be crucial and downplayed Trump’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s some significant contrast on issues that will tip a voter,” Huckabee said. “For example, the sanctity of life. There’s gonna to be a 180-degree difference between these two. If you are pro-life, you don’t have a choice. You’re gonna vote for Trump.”

Huckabee’s suggestion that former Vice President Joe Biden is competing for the Pro-Life vote seems risible. It also seems unlikely that abortion – which has been legal since 1973 – will tip the 2020 election. A clear majority of Americans are in favor of legalized abortion in some form.

“I think the only person who can defeat Donald Trump is Donald Trump,” Huckabee went on.

“I say that his message is the right one. But the matter in which he says it becomes critically important. We’re in very tense times and there needs to be that calming voice of reassurance. He can do that. He’s done it before. And that’s the balance he has got to strike.”

“It’s not too late. I think he will win because he’s a smart guy. He got there the first time. I think he’ll get there the second time. And he is running against somebody that half the time doesn’t remember what he is running for. So, yeah. I think he’s got some things to course correct. But, is it too late? Or is he in that deep of trouble? It can be fixed. And I believe it will be.”
