Former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says he and Donald Trump have “buried the hatchet” after months of political wrangling, and he is endorsing the GOP front-runner’s White House bid.
At a press conference in Palm Beach, Fla., on Friday, Carson, who left the race, described “two Donald Trumps” — the persona reflected on stage, and a private, “very cerebral” person who “considers things carefully.”
In his introduction to Carson Friday, Trump described the retired neurosurgeon as a “special, special person — special man,” and a “friend” who is respected by everyone.
Carson warned that it is “extremely dangerous” when political parties attempt to “thwart the will of the people,” and urged politicians to “strengthen the nation,” rather than create divisions.
Last Friday, Carson announced that he would end his own campaign to become involved in My Faith Votes, which will focus on increasing Christian voting in the upcoming election.
“Even though I might be leaving the campaign trail, you know there’s a lot of people who love me, they just won’t vote for me,” Carson said, smiling. “But I will still continue to be heavily involved in trying to save our nation.”
