Election HQ Huckabee on Trump in Gettysburg: 'It's American vs. American' Today Too
Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) reacted to Donald Trump's choice of Gettysburg, Pa., as the location for a major campaign speech, on Fox & Friends.
The site of the only northern battle of the Civil War, Huckabee said Trump made a good decision with the choice of venue, citing Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address.
"Lincoln gave that very distinct address, and he reminded people there had been an extraordinary battle of American versus American," in the once-indistinct crossroads between Harrisburg, Pa. and Frederick, Md.
"Nobody [today] has been killing each other, but it's been American versus American."
Huckabee said he felt a "real sense of optimism" surrounding the campaign despite what he considered an unbalance in media coverage of Trump controversies over WikiLeaks revelations.
He added that when he travels the country, people quietly tell him they are Trump supporters.
These voters won't speak to media on-camera "because they don't want their cars vandalized or their houses egged."
"I think we're going to see something very surprising on election day," he said, "the intensity of voters for Trump is stunning," he said.
