Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, said he expects Donald Trump to be in the race, Time magazine reported Tuesday.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Huckabee said that Trump would be a legitimate and tough opponent.

“I believe that if he gets in the race he is going to be formidable because everybody knows ‘The Donald’ and money will be no object for him . . . and I think he’s going to get in it,” Huckabee said to Walters in an interview scheduled to air later this month on her satellite radio program.

“I seriously believe he’s going to jump in,” Huckabee added.

He went on to say that he met with Trump a few weeks ago, and “got every indication that he is definitely going to run.”

“We had a nice talk because he had been on a talk show . . . and was asked

who he would be favorable toward if he didn’t run. He said ‘Well, one guy I like out there is Mike Huckabee,’ which kind of took me aback.

"Anyway, we had a mutual friend arrange a meeting and we just had a very honest and open conversation about the process of running.

"It was kind of like two dogs sniffing around a fire hydrant together,” Huckabee said.
