Mike Huckabee praised President Trump for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last week after a recent poll showed that more Americans do, in fact, see denuclearization as a likely outcome following the historic meeting.

The poll, by ABC News and the Washington Post, showed that 41 percent of those polled believe Kim will give up his nuclear weapons following the summit, up from 30 percent who were asked in April.

Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas and a Fox News contributor, said that Americans were able to see the difference in Kim's attitude following the summit.

Trump and Kim signed a document on June 12 stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"I think something will happen and Kim Jong Un understands that if he wants to continue to be the leader of North Korea, he gives up nuclear weapons," Huckabee said on "Fox & Friends."

"If he doesn't give them up, they will be taken from him and it will not be pretty," he added.

Huckabee also praised the president for his unorthodox approach to the agreement.

"He has proven time and again to be right when everyone -- even the people around him -- thought he was wrong," Huckabee said.

"Donald Trump has decided to throw convention out the window [and] not just do the things that have always been done which have been ineffective."
