Ben Carson Comes To The Defense Of Donald Trump

On Tuesday, Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson said that the negative backlash Donald Trump has received regarding his comments on John McCain were "petty." Addressing a group of young Republicans in Arlington, Va., Carson said "For us to get caught up in a controversy of well, 'What did Donald Trump mean when he said that?' — It just seems so petty to me.”

Over the weekend, Trump told a group of voters in Iowa, "He's not a war hero. He's a war hero because he was captured? I like people who weren't captured. ... Perhaps he is a war hero, but right now, he said some very bad things about a lot of people." Trump then clarified his statements by saying "If somebody's a prisoner, I consider them a war hero. I think John McCain's done very little for the veterans. I'm very disappointed in John McCain."

"I'm not sure from listening to what he said that he thinks that Mr. McCain is not a hero," Carson said. "He has repeatedly said yes, he is a hero, so I don't know where that comes from that he's disqualified."

On Tuesday, Carson also said that McCain was "absolutely" a war hero.

The latest Monmouth University poll released Monday showed Trump, with 13 percent, is second in Iowa behind Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 22 percent.
