During a recent press briefing on Friday, Acosta asked Huckabee a “gotcha” type question about President Trump’s recent “calm before the storm” comments.
Acosta implied that the president may be intentionally trying to “keep his adversaries guessing” by making “unsettling, off-putting comments.”
“I think the president addressed this himself. He doesn’t want to lay out his game plan for our enemies. If you’re asking, is the president trying to do that? Absolutely. I don’t think that’s a secret. I wouldn’t say necessarily that he’s trying to throw people off, but he’s not trying to broadcast or telegraph his exact actions,” Huckabee replied.
Sarah Huckabee couldn’t resist throwing in a veiled jab at Barack Obama, who was known for telegraphing his moves to our enemies, and added, “I think we’ve seen what a failure it is when an administration does that and this is a president that’s going to do things differently and do it better.”
