Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says President Trump's focus on changing the "climate of terrorism" is a greater priority than staying in the Paris climate agreement.
"Everybody wants a good environment. This idea that the number one threat we face — I think Donald Trump is on the right track. He's trying to change the climate of terrorism because he knows a beheading is still worse than a sunburn," Huckabee told "Fox and Friends" on Sunday.
Trump announced Saturday that he would make a final decision "next week" on whether to stay or exit the Paris climate agreement, though a report Saturday said the president has already told his EPA chief Scott Pruitt the US will leave the international pact.
Trump was the sole G7 member not to affirm his country's support for the agreement.
Huckabee said the deal puts "a greater burden" on the U.S. than other countries.
"We are not even the main polluters," he said. "We've done a lot to clean up this country."
