One thin Ben Carson is good at, identifying a bad situation and attempting to make it better.
That’s exactly what he tried to do his whole career as a surgeon. When something is not working, he analyzes the situation and made corrections that saved lives. This is why Ben Carson should be in Trump’s administration.
Good news! Looks like that’s exactly what is going to happen. Last week Carson said that if he was offered a position he would take the time to think about it. Now it looks like President-Elect Donald Trump has offered Dr. Carson the position of head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said on Tuesday that he’d had multiple “offers on the table” for positions in the incoming Trump administration, including secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“I would say that was one of the offers that is on the table,” the retired neurosurgeon told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto of the possibility that he is being considered for the the top job at HUD.
After Carson had seemed to rule out serving in government, Trump renewed the conversation by tweeting that Carson was being “seriously” considered to head HUD, which oversees federal housing policy.
And what did Trump have to say about the offer?
So that’s a confirmation that this is nearly a done deal. Carson’s upbringing in urban areas should serve him well in this role.
“I know that I grew up in the inner city,” Carson said. “And have spent a lot of time there. And have dealt with a lot of patients from that area. And recognize that we cannot have a strong nation if we have weak inner cities. And we have to get beyond the promises and start really doing something.”
This position will no doubt be loathed by liberals who have tried to push down the urban and intercity communities with the false front of hope, only to do nothing and let them deteriorate further. Ben Carson has been there, seen it first hand, and will rectify all the damage Obama has done these past 8 years to the minority community.
