Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee defended Donald Trump's policy shifts, saying the presumptive Republican nominee just needs to "keep the main thing the thing."

Appearing as a guest on "The Bernie And Sid Show" on New York Radio, Huckabee said Trump hasn't thought through every issue and as president, he won't need to anyway.

"He surrounds himself with people who have thought [it] through," Huckabee said of Trump's policy knowledge. "But his goal as president is to keep his eye on the big picture. Make the main thing the main thing."

At issue was Trump's stance on raising the minimum wage, a position he changed over the weekend, saying now he'd be open to raising it.

"I'm looking at that. I'm very different from most Republicans," Trump said on CNN.

By contrast, Paul Ryan, with whom Trump will meet later this week, and most Republicans are opposed to any hike to the minimum wage. It's one of several issues on which the presumptive GOP nominee differs from Ryan and congressional Republicans.

However, Huckabee's point is that kind of minutiae is not what Trump should be focused on in the first place.

"I think a lot of people are expecting him to be this professional at politics where he has thought through the details of every issue," Huckabee said on "The Bernie and Sid Show." "He hasn't. You know what? As president, he doesn't have to."
