Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said socialist policies would destroy America’s economy on “Mornings with Maria” Friday, just as they have in Venezuela.

Huckabee was being critical of Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts for her views on the unemployment rate, when he began arguing against a far-left agenda. (RELATED: Mike Huckabee Mocks Media For Calling Trump Treasonous)

“I wonder where are these fact-checkers that always love to fact-check conservatives and Republicans, half the time they’re not right about what they so-called fact-check,” Huckabee said with regard to Warren’s statements on the unemployment rate under President Donald Trump.

WATCH:

Huckabee switched gears and also mentioned New York Democratic Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and said her policies would lead America down a path of ruin, similar to that of Venezuela.

“The girl wonder there, the 20-year-old wonder-kin who is now a savant for economics, I mean good grief, if anybody wants to see what happens when you move toward a greater level of socialism let’s just take everybody down to Venezuela and let them stand in line for the toilet paper that you can’t even get anymore,” he concluded. “And ask them, is this the country you want?”
