Ben Carson Is Voting For Donald Trump For The Sake Of His Children And Grandchildren

During a radio interview on "Kelley and Kafer" Ben Carson rebuffed the position held by co-host Krista Kafer who said she would never vote for Trump--she described him as a "liar," a "fraud" and a "bad man." Carson said, "Remember, it's not for you, it's not for each of us. We are voting for our children, we are voting for our grandchildren."

He stated that Trump, and the other GOP candidates, "cannot be as bad" as Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Carson went on to say, “For me, it’s about the children and the grandchildren. If it were just me, I would be completely where Krista is. I would say, ‘Hey, I got this, I can deal with it,’ but for them, I can’t.”

Carson described his endorsement of Trump as pragmatic. In addition, he said that Ohio Gov. John Kasich can only win through a contested convention.

He also shared that Sen. Ted Cruz would have a difficult time reaching moderate Republicans and Democrats--arguing that both options would mean defeat for the Republicans in November.

Carson added, "So in terms of who can potentially win, I think that would be Donald Trump. When I look at the consequences of not winning, it’s too horrible to even think about."
