It would be a good idea for President Donald Trump to bring former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski into the White House to "bring order" to the president's staff, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Friday.
"I'm a big fan of Corey Lewandowski's," Huckabee told Fox News' "Outnumbered" program. "He did a terrific job for Donald Trump."
Lewandowski would bring in two qualities that Trump needs in a person to fill a job such as that, said Huckabee: he's loyal and he knows how to keep his mouth shut.
"Even when he was fired, he never said one negative thing about Donald Trump or the people around him," Huckabee said. "He could have gone out and said 'there were people out to get me.' Never did he do it. That tells me that this the kind of guy you want on your team."
Earlier this week, Politico reported that Trump is turning to his former advisers as he's losing faith in his current team, including Lewandowski, who was pushed out as the president's campaign manager in June 2016 following a power struggle with campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Lewandowski then went on to form a lobbying firm in Washington D.C., but has resigned from that position. He denied the Politico report about his return to Trump's side.
Meanwhile, Huckabee, whose daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is the White House deputy press secretary, said she is very loyal to press secretary Sean Spicer and to the president.
Earlier this week, the White House announced that Spicer would no longer be giving daily press briefings, but Huckabee said his daughter is not a person who would be cheered by that news.
"That's a tough job," said Huckabee. "I don't know if she even wants it. But I believe she's good at it and she did a great job when she was there, in part because she's got some southern charm. She knows how to go out and say 'bless your heart,' and when a southern woman says that, it may be all smiles, but she's about to filet you."
Huckabee said it's important at this time that Trump surround themselves with loyal people who are working for him and not for themselves.
"You can't have a lot of people who were Judas," said Huckabee. "You need more like Jesus. Mostly in campaigns, Judas is more prevalent than Jesus, but you need to have people you can absolutely, 100 percent trust. They're hard to find. Once you get them, you want to keep them."
