Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee called out former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for hypocrisy on Monday after she attacked President Donald Trump on Twitter for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?” Clinton wrote on Twitter Sunday.

Trump is meeting with Putin in their first formal one-on-one discussion, taking place in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday.

Huckabee had no qualms about sharing his thoughts about Clinton’s tweet. (RELATED: US Ambassador To Russia: Trump Is ‘Most Experienced Negotiator Ever Elected To The Presidency’)

“Hillary tweeted, ‘Q for Trump as he meets Putin: Do U know which team you play for?’ [The president] never accepted $500K dollars for 1 speech from Russian bank, taken $140m for his foundation from Russian sources, or sold Russia 1/5 of US uranium supply. Which team are YOU on, Hillary?” he wrote on Twitter.

Huckabee was referencing decisions Clinton made while she was secretary of state. She returned 10 Russian spies to Moscow while striking a uranium deal with the Russian state nuclear agency, Rosatom. Rosatom received 20 percent of U.S. uranium capacity, and the Clinton Family Foundation and its offshoots received more than $140 million.

Trump and Putin will develop their personal relationship during the meeting on Monday. The U.S. and Russia have many common interests like nuclear stability and defeating the Islamic State to discuss, said U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman.

“We’re informed by the past, what we’ve learned and what they have done,” Huntsman, who has served as ambassador to Singapore and to China, said on “Fox & Friends” Sunday. “We’re going to put our cards on the table, we’re going to look at theirs and we’re going to see where we have overlapping interests.”
