Former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee (R) has officially endorsed former President Donald Trump in his quest for the GOP nomination in 2024.
The “Huckabee” host said Trump helped do more for America than any president in his lifetime, on his weekly TBN show.
Huckabee, who also endorsed Trump in 2016, after dropping out of the race in his own bid for the nomination, likened his support for the former president to the selection of a qualified surgeon.
“When people ask, how could I support him? I say, well, it’s like choosing a doctor to do surgery on a member of my family. If my choice was between a kind, loving, praying surgeon, who had the bedside manner of a pastor, but who had never successfully done that particular surgery…” Huckabee announced.
“Or I could pick a surgeon who was gruff, bombastic, and impatient, and who had the bedside manner of a schoolyard bully, but he had successfully done that surgery hundreds of times. I’d pick the guy with the questionable personality, but with the skillful, experienced surgical hands,” Huckabee added.

The end reason for the endorsement is because according to Huckabee, Trump did more during his first term to implement America’s first policies in America, than any other president in history, even beloved Republican President Ronald Reagan.
“There were presidents who were more articulate and had a more engaging sense of humor, such as Kennedy and Reagan,” Huckabee said. “There were some who had great legislative savvy, such as Lyndon Johnson. Some were truly decent and kind human beings — Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush. But no president, no president, helped this country get steered away from the insanity of socialist economics and insane policies on energy, the military, and the proper role of the courts.”
