Where will Dr. Ben Carson land in the Trump administration?
Surgeon general, maybe?
That would make perfect sense, since he was a world renowned surgeon, after all.
Today, Carson went on Fox News and made a big announcement.
He said he will ‘give serious consideration’ to a cabinet spot if offered.
From Fox News:
Less than a week after saying he would not seek a Cabinet position in the Trump administration, the retired neurosurgeon told Fox News Channel’s “Fox Report Weekend” on Sunday that he was open to accepting a spot on Trump’s White House team.
“Basically, I’ve said my preference is to be outside and to act as an adviser, but if after going through the process they all conclude it would be much better to have me in the Cabinet, I would have to give that very serious consideration,” Carson said. “It’s just not my preference.”
Carson’s about-face comes just days after an embarrassing back-and-forth during which Carson had to bat down claims made by his business manager, Armstrong Williams, that Carson wasn’t seeking the job due to the complexity of the position.
“My decision not to seek a Cabinet position in the Trump administration has nothing to do with the complexity of the job as is being reported by some news outlets,” Carson wrote.
Let’s make it happen, Mr. Trump.
Carson would be an EXCELLENT choice.
