Ben Carson on Trump: "Are there better people? Probably"

When asked in a radio interview with John Catsimatidis why he endorsed the business mogul, Carson listed several of Trump’s qualities, including: his business success, favorable image among his employees and parenting skills.

“All of that says quite a bit about a person,” Carson said. “Now does it mean that he’s perfect? No, he has some major defects, there’s no question about it – just like the rest of us. But I think he is willing to listen to other people. He may not say that publicly because there is a humility issue there that could perhaps use some polishing.”

“Nobody believes in the government anymore. Everybody believes that we are weak, we are weak on the world stage, we are not doing things that make sense economically. And he’s probably the person who is most likely to do that. Are there better people? Probably.”
