As early as the Iowa Caucuses Mike Huckabee embraced Donald Trump as the heir apparent to the Republican brand and continued to defend him throughout the election.
And now that loyalty is being repaid with an ambassadorship.
Details from Breitbart:
Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is reportedly President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel.
Yahoo News, citing The Jerusalem Post, reports several members on the President-elect’s transition team say Huckabee will take the post as ambassador to Israel for the Trump administration.
Although some are saying it’s not true. From Young Cons:
A report is saying this is not true…
A Trump team official told the Independent Journal Review that “reports suggesting President-elect Donald Trump has selected former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to be U.S. ambassador to Israel are not true.”
