President-elect DONALD TRUMP is considering former GOP presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon BEN CARSON for the head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Carson suggested on Facebook that he would join the TRUMP administration, reversing his stance last week that he didn’t want to work in government.
He said and I quote, “After serious discussions with the TRUMP transition team, I feel that I can make a significant contribution particularly to making our inner cities great for everyone. An announcement is forthcoming about my role in helping to make America great again.”, end of quote.
But several hours after the Facebook post was written, CARSON’s spokesman ARMSTRONG WILLIAMS said that his boss was still considering the HUD opportunity and that no decision had been made.
