Steve Harvey is another superstar that paid visit to Donald Trump at his Trump Tower. Harvey said that Trump “immediately got Dr. Ben Carson on the phone to begin dialog in looking for programs and housing to help our inner cities.”
Harvey went ahead to state, “I walked away feeling like I had just talked with a man who genuinely wants to make a difference in this area. I feel that something really great could come out of this. I would sit with him anytime.”
In the interim, Carson showed up before the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee on Thursday. In the same way as other of Trump’s bureau picks, he’s been disparaging of the office he would like to lead.
In Washington Times 2015 article, Carson said “These government-engineered attempts to legislate racial equality create consequences that often make matters worse. There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.”
The 65-year-old rose from a ruined youth in Detroit to go to Yale and the University of Michigan Medical School, lead the pediatric neurosurgery office at John Hopkins University and later battle for the Republican presidential designation.
After Trump won the decision, Carson disputed when at first got some information about a conceivable bureau post, referring to his absence of involvement in government or running an elected office. At the point when tested by Ohio’s Sen. Sherrod Brown, Carson clarified, “My philosophy is that we can increase people’s minimum wages by increasing opportunities for them and creating an environment where those opportunities exist rather than artificially trying to change it.”
