The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), America’s premier Christian television station, is not just for televangelists anymore. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee will launch a new TBN talk show, “Huckabee,” which will air each Saturday at 8 pm Eastern.


The promotional materials for the show positions it as a show for heartland conservatives, who often feel they aren’t fairly represented by mainstream media outlets. It promises to showcase stories of that remind viewers of “what makes America so amazing.” As Huckabee says in a new promo video for the show, “There is a lot of America between New York and L.A., and sometimes we seem to forget that simple fact.”

The show’s first episode airs tomorrow evening, and its first guest is none other than President Donald Trump. In a one-minute clip from the segment, Governor Huckabee asks President Trump about his peace plan for the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

“You mention the Middle East. Evangelicals are very interested in support for Israel. It’s something near and dear to your heart…. Ambassador Friedman indicated that the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem,” Huckabee remarks. “Do we have a time frame?”

President Trump mentions that he will not make a decision about the embassy until his larger peace plan is solidified. Trump’s peace plan, the president said, will be decided “in the not-too-distant future” and “everybody says it is not going to work.” But Trump asserts that the naysayers are wrong and is hopeful that peace is possible.

The clip is less than one-minute long and is only a first look into the longer interview. We can presume that Trump’s remarks on the show will not please his more progressive critics, but this early clip features at least one comment that most people can agree on: “the toughest deal of all is peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”

The full episode will air Saturday, October 7th at 8 pm Eastern / 7 pm Central on the Trinity Broadcast Network.
