In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee lambasted President Barack Obama for using his speech to the nation about the Dallas attacks as a platform for gun control, even as the president stated that not all the facts were known.
“I think this is a time when real leaders bring people together, he doesn’t split them apart,” Huckabee said in his appearance on Fox News. “He doesn’t need to inject the divisive arguments like gun control at a time of great grief for the nation,” Huckabee continued. “And he ought to do for us what Ronald Reagan did after the Challenger disaster. And that’s remind us of what we have in common, not what separates us. And that’s why I’m always so frustrated. Barack Obama has such great potential to be a leader.”
According to Huckabee, the focus of the president’s speech should have been on the brave sacrifice made by the police officers who were shot, “and solely on the police officers and the sacrifices of their family and leave all of the political discussions aside,” Huckabee declared. “There’s plenty of time for that. Today there’s one thing (that) ought to be on the president’s mind.”
