Carson Campaign Thinks Trump Is ‘Crazy’

Ben Carson says he will not “get into the mud pit” by criticizing Donald Trump, despite the businessman’s taunts and insults, Newsmax reported.

However, according to The Washington Examiner, the doctor’s campaign aides think Trump is “crazy” and that his campaign “is imploding.” They have “decided to stick with a policy of non-engagement because they believe Trump is self-destructing and they don’t want to get in the way,” the newspaper explained.

The billionaire businessman has mocked Carson’s “low energy,” questioned his ability to negotiate with foreign leaders, and accused him of having “pathological disease.”

For the most part, the retired brain surgeon is resisting any urge he might have to respond to the inflammatory remarks. Republican voters “are at this moment trying to decide between Trump and Carson, and constant replays of Trump’s attack might nudge them toward Carson,” the Examiner reported. “In that sense, Carson’s aides believe Carson himself doesn’t have to react because the media will do his work for him.”

Trump led the Republican presidential race for months but has slipped into a tight battle with Carson at the top of the 14-candidate field. Neither of the front-runners has ever before sought public office. That is helping their White House bids, as a majority of GOP voters want a political outsider to be the next president.
