Mike Huckabee Expects to Get More Speaking Time in Lower Debate

(MSNBC/"Morning Joe")

GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who has been pushed back to the undercard debate on Tuesday night, said he's not excited about being on the lower card, but perhaps he'll get more questions.

"If we don't get an adequate amount of time in those debates, it's hard to keep advancing," the former Arkansas governor, who dropped to the lower debate along with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.

He continued that he got just three questions in the CNBC debate, and it was not easy to get his message out, noting that he wanted to talk about protecting Social Security and Medicare, but instead got questions about Donald Trump's moral character.

And with that, he got a question on the show about if he thinks Trump has the moral character to be president, and he said he does.

"I look at his family and his kids," he replied. "To me that's a barometer of who an adult is. If you have adult children who are responsible, successful in their own right and who love their father, you have to say the guy's done something right."

But at the same time, the presidency is "a little bit above an entry level job," said Huckabee.

"I think to qualify for the presidency, one needs to have had not just executive experience in the business world, I've had that, but it did not prepare one to be an executive in governor because it's totally different. You can't fire the legislature, you cannot fire all the bureaucrats that don't like you and you better learn how to work with them because otherwise you're dead in the water."

The former governor, who later appeared on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," told the program that his campaign has had an uptick in donations after the news was announced about Tuesday's debate "because people feel like we got screwed."
