Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is dismissing recent reports suggesting President-elect Donald Trump picked him to be his ambassador to Israel.

Huckabee’s tweet comes after he met with Trump on Friday afternoon.

Yahoo News, citing the Jerusalem Post, as well as the Daily Mail, recently reported that Huckabee would be the ambassador to Israel.

However, on Friday afternoon, an official from the Trump transition team reportedly denied the earlier reports.
