Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said he “misspoke” when he suggested in a radio interview that President Obama’s childhood in Kenya shaped his worldview - even though Mr. Obama did not visit Kenya until he was in his 20s.
The potential Republican presidential candidate told New York radio station WOR on Monday that Mr. Obama’s youth led him to resent the West, which he said explains why, in Mr. Huckabee’s view, Mr. Obama’s foreign policy differs so greatly from that of his predecessors.
The director of Mr. Huckabee’s political action committee said the former governor misspoke.
“When the governor mentioned he wanted to know more about the president, he wasn’t talking about the president’s place of birth. The governor believes the president was born in Hawaii,” Hogan Gidley said. “The governor would, however, like to know more about where President Obama’s liberal policies come from, and what else the president plans to do to this country - as do most Americans.”
