Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has symbolically taken part in the building of an Israeli settlement in the West Bank.
The former governor of Arkansas laid bricks and spread cement Wednesday in a new neighborhood in Efrat. He said he may one day "purchase a holiday home" there.
Huckabee, whose daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the White House press secretary, said he's sure President Donald Trump would have been pleased to join him, "because he is a builder and he loves to see construction sites."
The evangelical Christian said Trump is now "building a new world order."
Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Mideast war. The Palestinians and much of the international community consider the hundreds of thousands of settlers that now live there to be an obstacle to peace.
