Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) described President TrumpDonald John TrumpPoll: Both parties need to do more on drug prices Senate approves .3 trillion spending bill, sending to Trump White House: Trump will delay steel tariffs for EU, six countries MORE on Monday as a doctor who sometimes has a gruff bedside manner.

“Donald Trump is kind of like a doctor who sometimes has a rather gruff bedside manner. Nobody’s going to argue that point. He can be crude and he can come across sometimes less than people think,” Huckabee, a loyal Trump supporter, told “Fox & Friends.”

“But by golly the patient is alive and I’d rather have this president, who gets things done, then one who comes in, he’s nice and he’s polite and he smiles, but my family member dies in the hospital bed,” he continued.

“America needs to say two words to Donald Trump, thank you,” he added.

Huckabee’s comments come after Trump issued a series of tweets last week, saying he was under investigation as a part of the federal probe into Russian election meddling.
