"Why don't we just show the door to Liz Cheney (R-WY), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Richard Burr (R-NC), and a few other people who just aren't in sync with us and let them go?" Huckabee asked during a recent appearance on "The Todd Starnes Show." "We'll stay because we have more of us than they do of them."

Since the November election, there has been a lot of talk about Trump supporters leaving the Republican Party and perhaps even forming a new political party. In fact, according to an exclusive Suffolk University/USA TODAY Poll, almost half of Republicans would join a new Trump party.

"I don't think people in the Republican Party ought to leave," said Huckabee. "I think we ought to show the door to the folks who don't enjoy, appreciate, and agree with a party that stands up for working class people."

According to Huckabee, the reason Donald Trump was "an extraordinarily popular president" is because he speaks for people who have long been held in contempt by the elites of the coast.

"People are sick of that," Huckabee continued. "I want to stand up for the people who are living in rural America, for people who ride tractors and work on factory floors, standing on concrete floors all day … people who have hunting licenses and fishing licenses and really don't want much from the government other than to be left alone."

In Huckabee's opinion, those are the people who make America.
