(POLITICO) When it comes to Donald Trump's threat to go after Bill Clinton as the former president ramps up campaigning for his wife's bid, Mike Huckabee is all in on his Republican rival.
“Look, nothing’s backfired on Donald Trump yet. I’d put my money on him," the former governor of Arkansas told "Fox and Friends" in an interview Monday. "Frankly, he’s played the whole media game like a kid on Christmas morning with a toy drum. He’s beaten the heck out of them, and I honestly don't think that this is going to hurt Donald Trump … and I think the Clintons have some vulnerability here.”
Every time someone tries to attack the Manhattan mogul, Huckabee remarked, "it backfires on them." But asked whether the former president represented a "liability for Hillary Clinton," the former governor disagreed, noting that many Americans still view Bill Clinton favorably and that even some Republicans would prefer him over the current president.
