Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee appeared on Steve Deace’s radio program on Thursday where the two discussed President Obama's negotiations with Iran on its nuclear program.
According to RightWingWatch.org, Deace claimed that President Obama was not aware of how dangerous Iran is and then asked Huckabee why this was so (video below).
"I believe he does not want America to be the superpower that we have been,” Huckabee said. “It’s almost as if he’s afraid of that. He believes that America would be better off if we were 'one of the boys' instead of the big brother."
Huckabee did not mention President Obama has bombed Muslim terrorists in seven Islamic countries since being in office, as noted by The Intercept in 2014.
The New York Times reported last month that President Obama asked Congress to fund the U.S. defense (base) budget to the tune of $534 billion.
Politico.com notes that $534 billion is an increase of $38 billion from last year. President Obama also wants an additional $50.9 billion in supplemental funding for counterterrorism and U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Huckabee also claimed: "What has changed is Barack Obama’s influence over foreign policy. What has changed is his innate desire to see America a weaker country rather than a stronger country and that some Democrats are more interested in protecting Obama than they are in protecting America, and that’s the real sad fact."
NBC News reported in 2014 that the U.S. defense budget was more than the combined defense budgets of China, Russia, the UK, Japan, France, Saudi Arabia, India, Germany, Italy and Brazil.
