Trump To Appoint Ex-Rival Ben Carson As Housing Secretary

US President-elect Donald Trump’s one-time presidential rival, the respected Doctor Ben Carson, appeared to be a cabinet shoo-in Tuesday after both men mentioned his possible Housing and Urban Development appointment.

Trump said, “I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I’ve gotten to know him well – he’s a greatly talented person who loves people!”

Dr. Carson himself indicated on Fox that the HUD position “is one of the offers that’s on the table.”

“Our inner cities are in terrible shape and they definitely need some real attention,” he said, adding that he had been interested in housing for a long time.

It would be recalled that he quit the presidential race in March and endorsed Trump a week later.
