Yup – The Donald has said it! He has in mind a place for Ben Carson in his Administration…
GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said Friday he’d “absolutely” hire another top-tier candidate, Ben Carson, to be part of his administration, but he didn’t say in what position the retired neurosurgeon, who is in second place behind him in the polls, would end up.
“I would love to have that,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show, pointing out that he doesn’t know if Carson would be a tough negotiator because he “would say it’s not his wheelhouse.”
But in “certain elements of administration,” Carson would be “very good,” Trump said.
He described Carson as being “a nice man” with whom he has a “good relationship.”
“I’m sure he’ll hit me,” said Trump. “So far, we’ve had a good relationship.”
Also, he said he believes Carson is qualified to be the president, because “if he’s running and if he wins, he’s qualified; that’s the way the system works,” but Carson or anyone else will not “be able to do the job I’m going to do.”
The polling has been “amazing” for both men, Trump said, and when you add the numbers together, “in some cases you’re up to 55 to 60 percent.”
Yep, Uncle Ben will look downright spiffy!
Or perhaps a leadership position…
