Former presidential candidate and Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee appears in the upcoming film God's Not Dead 2 as a political commentator. The film, which focuses on religious liberty, also stars Melissa Joan Hart, Jesse Metcalf, David A.R. White, Pat Boone, Ray Wise and Robin Givens.
In an exclusive interview, Gov. Huckabee recently commented on why the subject is so important today, the state of the faith-based film industry and his predictions about the presidential race. This is part two of a two-part series. Read part one here.
Do you have any predictions of how you think the race is going to go now?
Well, it's hard to say, but it certainly appears that Donald Trump is on his way to what looks like an unstoppable nomination, and I think if he gets the nomination, he will be president. I think people have underestimated him all along. He's actually a very smart man. He knows what he's doing. The people who assume he's out there kind of just waking up every day in a new world, they don't understand. He knows exactly what he's doing and he's brilliant at it. He has tapped into a lot of the frustration that people rightly have about the government and institutions that have miserably failed us, and he has given people a sense of hope that if he were president, he wouldn't be owned by the normal corporate donors. I think that's one of his greatest selling points, because he's self-funding his campaign, he's not indebted or totally indentured to the donors who are funding him.
What's next for you, Governor? Will you resume your talk show? I don't know. I'm waiting to see what opportunities come my way. There was no guarantee when I left that I would have a pathway back, so it could be that they invite me to come back and do that, but there's just not guarantee at all. I'm taking it a step at a time and recovering from what was a very brutal year of campaigning. Then we'll take it from there.
