Ben Carson Takes The Gloves Off With Trump

Often touted as the "quiet" presidential candidate, Ben Carson is starting to step out and take some verbal jabs against Donald Trump. When queried about a Carson-Trump ticket, he cited their different immigration policies saying "It sounds really cool, you know, 'Let's just round them all up and send them back.' People who say that have no idea what that would entail in terms of our legal system, the costs — forget about it. Plus, where you gonna send them? It's a double whammy."

On Tuesday, Carson spoke with Fox New's Megyn Kelly who shared Trump's comment on Carson not having any job-creating experience. Carson quipped "Well, my response to that is that interestingly enough — and perhaps a lot of people don't know this — I've done lots of things in my life other than medicine. I have decades of experience on corporate boards — Kellogg, Costco, Vaccinogen, started a national nonprofit, have been involved in multitudinous things." Currently, Carson has risen in the polls only second to Trump. Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," "I'm hoping for Ben to really hit me at some point, because I love to counterpunch." Hope Hicks, Trump's campaign spokeswoman, said they had "no response" to Carson's comments.
