Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is dismissing recent reports suggesting President-elect Donald Trump picked him to be his ambassador to Israel.
Media buzz that I was named Amb to Israel is NOT true. Was never discussed with PE Trump; slot probably not picked until State Dept in place

Huckabee’s tweet comes after he met with Trump on Friday afternoon.
However, on Friday afternoon, an official from the Trump transition team reportedly denied the earlier reports.
