Mike Huckabee says President Donald Trump performed well for the nation in 2017.
"Even some of his most staunch critics grudgingly admitted that things were better off than they’d predicted," the former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate writes on MikeHuckabee.com.
"Instead of a never-ending stock crash and a worldwide depression, the Dow gained 5,000 points in one year for the first time ever, and the economy is booming.
"Unemployment is way down, including black and Hispanic unemployment rates; hiring and business expansion are up; and there are no internment camps for immigrants, only deportations of criminal illegal aliens, which is what laws passed years ago by bipartisan Congresses require."
Huckabee adds that during Trump’s time in the White House, the Islamic State has seen its "dreams of an expansive caliphate … crushed as they were driven from the territory they grabbed over the past eight years, and the people there celebrated no longer being tortured, beaten, raped and murdered."
"As well, instead of kowtowing to dictators, as we have for years, standing up to them has emboldened reformers in Iran and Saudi Arabia and forced China to step up in trying to rein in North Korea."
