Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on Monday defended Donald Trump’s foreign policy approach and touted his ability to listen and to learn on complex issues such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I didn’t agree with [Trump] on that (“neutral” on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict comments). But I am telling you this: I would rather have him because I think he is willing to learn about the big difference between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” Huckabee said during a debate with Dan Senor, a former foreign policy adviser to several presidential candidates, on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Monday. “I don’t think Hillary [Clinton] has the capacity to change her mind. I think she’s ironclad.”

Senor responded in dismay: “I have been involved with Republican and Conservative national security debates for decades. I am sad to say that our nominee, the best we can say for him is that he will be slightly less worse than the Democratic candidate.”
