OXON HILL, Md. —

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says the United States' standing in the world has diminished under President Barack Obama, and its next leader faces a tough task in rebuilding America's might.

Huckabee on Friday has told an annual gathering of conservative leaders and activists that "no one trusts us, no one listens to us, no one respects us, no one fears us." Huckabee is weighing a presidential campaign in 2016 and says the United States has reduced its military power and other nations have taken advantage of it.

Huckabee says that as a result, Russian President Vladimir Putin only shakes when he takes his shirt off in the Russian winter but not when Washington threatens him.

Huckabee is speaking at the second day of the Conservative Political Action Conference.
