After reports surfaced that Ben Carson had turned down President Donald Trump’s offer to be the next secretary of Health and Human Services the press jumped all over Ben. They said he didn’t accept due to government inexperience.
Liberals were shocked when shortly after, Ben Carson accepted Trump’s offer to run HUD. Liberals, always thinking they are the smartest people in any room were left scratching their heads and went looking for a scandal related to the appointment so they could bash Carson or Trump.
Carson’s longtime friend, the Rev. Dr. A.R. Bernard, broke his silence and revealed the real reason Ben Carson took the HUD job at a Jewish-Evangelical Round Table meeting held at Calvary Baptist Church in New York City. Not even liberals will be able to bash Ben’s glorious reason.
Bernard leads the 40,000-member Christian Cultural Center in New York City. He said that Carson opted to accept Trump’s offer of secretary of Housing and Urban Development instead because he wanted to fix the nation’s inner cities once and for all and only Trump has the vision to let him find creative solutions to do this.
“Dr. Ben Carson and I have been friends for about 10 years. We were doing town hall meetings to talk about what’s happening in America morally and how that impacts things socially. So, when I got the call from him about what was presented to him and why HUD, of course as a neurosurgeon you would think that Health and Human Services is the better fit.”
“I flew down to Dr. Carson’s home and we sat and we talked. And he made it clear. He said Health and Human Services made sense but he didn’t want to spend the next four years, maybe even eight years battling Obamacare. He didn’t want that to be his legacy.”
“He wanted to do something and have the freedom to be creative. So, when he explained that HUD made a lot of sense because with the right staffing to run that department, you’re talking about $45 billion budget, 8,000 employees. With the right staffing, it would afford him time to be creative. So I saw Trump’s campaign promise to address the inner city as a … challenge and an opportunity.”
“Dr. Carson will be revolutionizing the way America thinks about housing and inner cities and asked for his help in creating a path forward.”
“Dr. Carson asked me if I would assist him. I was asked to put together a framework to begin the process. This has always been something that I have had a passion for, the inner city.”
Looks like Ben Carson is the perfect choice.
