"Everything" President Obama does is "against what Christians stand for," former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said in an interview Monday.
“Everything he does is against what Christians stand for, and he’s against the Jews in Israel,” Huckabee, who is considering a 2016 presidential run, said on Fox News's “Fox & Friends.” “The one group of people that can know they have his undying, unfailing support would be the Muslim community.”
The conservative former governor was commenting on Obama's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast last week, where Obama noted while discussing Islamic extremism that Christianity has been used to justify violence in the past.
"It was the pulpits of America — yeah, some of them were wrong — but many of them were the ones who brought the conscious of the nation to get them right," he said, noting that Christian preachers were leaders in the civil rights movement.
Conservatives have long said that Obama isn't engaging aggressively enough with the issue of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which burned a Jordanian fighter pilot alive last week.
"He said our greatest threat was climate change,” Huckabee said of Obama. “I assure you that a beheading is much worse than a sunburn," repeating a line he used a few weeks ago at the Iowa Freedom Summit.
