GOP and Democrats, your days are numbered. Ben Carson just supported Trump for President!
What so many don’t know is that Carson was long rumored to be a running mate for Trump. Now that Carson is out of the race, he’s supporting Donald Trump. Does this mean he’ll be a likely VP when Trump gets the nomination? Only time will tell. However, this news comes as a big surprise and a welcome one as we didn’t really know who Carson would support. Carson was dwindling in the polls and it was inevitable that he’d drop out. He never once gave any clue as to who he would back.
Now we know and we’re pumped up!
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson formally endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential bid Friday, praising the real estate mogul and saying he wants “the voice of the people to be heard.”
“He’s actually a very intelligent man who cares deeply about America,” Carson said at a press conference at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Forida. “There’s two different Donald Trumps. There’s the one you see on stage and the one that’s very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully.”
The endorsement is the second former presidential candidate to give his official backing to Trump — after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — and comes before several crucial primaries next Tuesday, as the real estate mogul hopes to unify support behind his presidential bid that has divided the Republican party.
Carson, who said he prayed over his decision, told reporters that he and Trump had reconciled after having several spats while both were presidential candidates.
“We buried the hatchet,” the retired neurosurgeon said. “We moved on because it’s not about me. It’s not about Mr. Trump. This is about America.”
Damn right! It is about America. And America needs Trump! We salute you Dr. Carson. You’ve made a great decision and we hope Trump considers you for Vice President!
