Mike Huckabee is headed back to the Holy Land.
The two-time White House hopeful, former Fox New Channel weekend host and former governor of Arkansas will be America’s next ambassador to Israel, a presidential transition official confirmed to DailyMail.com on Friday. He met with President-elect Donald Trump Friday afternoon.
Huckabee, an ordained Baptist preacher and electric bass player, would become the tip of Trump’s spear as he seeks to shake up U.S. foreign relations in the Middle East, beginning with relocating America’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
‘That’s going to happen,’ the transition official said. ‘Governor Huckabee is going to see it through.’
