Dr. Ben Carson has today endorsed Donald Trump for the Republican nomination for president. This comes one week after he ended his bid White House.
Ben Carson’s endorsement of Donald Trump is very surprising given that the billionaire businessman verbally attacked Carson during the campaign.But Ben Carson said that he and Trump have “buried the hatchet.”
“Some people have said, ‘well, why would you get behind a man like Donald Trump?’” Carson told reporters alongside Trump. “I’ve come to know Donald Trump over the last few years. He is actually a very intelligent man who cares deeply about America.”
“There are two different Donald Trumps. There’s the one you see on the stage, and there’s the one who’s very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully, you can have a very good conversation with him, and that’s the Donald Trump that you’re going to start seeing more and more of right now,” Carson said.
“We buried the hatchet.” Carson added.
“Some people said, but, well, you know, he said terrible things about you. How could you support him? First of all, we buried the hatchet,” he said.
“That was political stuff. And that happens in American politics. The politics of personal destruction, all that, it’s not something that I particularly believe in or anything that I get involved in. But I do recognize it is a part of the process. We move on, because it’s not about me, it’s not about Mr. Trump. It’s about America. and this is what we have to be thinking about.”
