Ben Carson Defends Donald Trump: ‘He’s Not Racist At All’

Dr. Ben Carson attends a film premiere.

In an interview with Fox News broadcast on Sunday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary (HUD) Ben Carson defended President Donald Trump against accusations of racism, The New York Post reports.

Carson went on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the attacks President Trump has been launching at progressive Congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

The president told the women to “go back” to their countries, despite the fact that all of them are American citizens and three of them were born in the United States. Trump’s remarks were widely condemned as racist, but the controversy is not dying down, and the president has continued attacking the representatives.

The attacks culminated on Wednesday at a Trump rally, where the crowd chanted “send her back!” as the president slammed and insulted Representative Omar, a Somali refugee.

None of that is racist, according to (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson.
