Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was the only Republican presidential candidate to accept the AFL-CIO's invitation to meet with its executive committee this week, and he argued that they might not be serving their members well to support only Democrats.

Appearing Wednesday on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper," Huckabee said he told the union leaders they have supported Democrats "100 percent" and "For that you got a 40 percent tax on your health care plans."

"You've supported the Keystone pipeline, yet the Democrats are the ones keeping us from having it," he added. "I reminded them that at the time of the trade agreement, which will dislocate even more Americans from their jobs, we haven't enforced both sides of the trade agreements we have."

America has lost 5 billion manufacturing jobs and 60,000 manufacturing plants since the year 2000, he said, so if they have been "putting all your eggs in the Democrats' basket and this is what you get, you might want to put a few of your eggs in another basket."
