Ben Carson says Trump has offered him HUD secretary, other Cabinet posts
At Conservative Read by Chris,
It appears the doctor is in.
Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is close to accepting the position of secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet, a GOP source with knowledge of the offer told Fox News late Tuesday.
The source said Carson would consider Trump’s offer over the Thanksgiving holiday before making a final decision.
On Tuesday, Carson told Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto” that the HUD position was “one of the offers [from Trump] that is on the table.”
“Our inner cities are in terrible shape,” Carson said. “And they definitely need some real attention.
There have been so many promises made over the last several decades and nothing has been done, so it certainly is something that has been a long-term interest of mine.”
