COLUMBIA, S.C. – Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee returned to South Carolina on Tuesday to file for the state’s presidential primary.
7 on Your Side asked Gov. Huckabee his response to an audience question to Donald Trump about a “Muslim Problem” in our country.
“I think we have a problem that is not so much about Muslims, I think we have a problem about the identity of who American’s are,” Huckabee said. “We are free people, we love liberty, we embrace the freedom to be who we want to be, and there’s got to be room for all of us in this country.”
He said the real challenges in the U.S. are money problems, national security or military issues, and a, “lack of moral foundation for our country.”
Gov. Huckabee said he has been to SC more than any other Republican candidate because he came up short in the state eight years ago.
“One thing I learned is there’s no prize for second place,” he said.
Gov. Huckabee’s next stops in SC are Whitmire, Newberry, and Lexington.
