    US Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee accused President Barack Obama of lacking experience as president.

    The US presidential candidate said that Obama's foreign policy leads only to “international scourge”.

    “People should respect, trust, and even be afraid of the United States but right now there is none of that. This is because our president is on the wrong side in Syria, he has chosen the wrong side in Libya, he had underestimated Yemen and he found himself on the wrong side in Egypt. He makes promises that he doesn’t want to fulfill. He announced his intentions in Afghanistan, which led to a catastrophe. Obama suffers one setback after another,” Huckabee said.

    The Republican said while comparing the foreign policy of the US president with Russia’s president, “This president has been rolled by Vladimir Putin like a California sushi.”

    He further noted, “Whether it's a red line and whether Russia goes to prop up Bashar al-Assad — the result is always the same: Putin is leading, Obama is following,” Mike Huckabee said during an interview with Fox News.

    He said that Obama’s policy has led to unmitigated international disaster.
