Carson Cites Negotiating Experience As a Doctor

Ben Carson insisted Sunday that he has the necessary qualifications to carry out the foreign-policy duties of the presidency.

The Hill reported that the Republican presidential candidate was responding to Donald Trump, his leading rival for the nomination. The billionaire businessman recently claimed Carson has no negotiating experience.

“I don’t want to necessarily compare myself with anyone, but I can tell you that, you know, I’ve had lots of experience doing a whole host of things; negotiating with all kinds of people in order to get things accomplished,” Carson said on “This Week” on ABC. “And also bear in mind, there is no one person who does all the negotiation and knows everything, you know. In a multitude of counselors is safety.”

The candidate stressed that the president needs to “understand what the stakes are” while working out international agreements. “You have to know what your goals are,” he said. “If you don’t know what your goals are, you’re not going to be doing it.”

Carson continued: “When you go into a negotiation, the recent Iran negotiation, for instance, you have to know how to negotiate. You have to know how to verify, how to make sure that there’s appropriate accountability. You have to be able to take down their infrastructure.”

He explained that as director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, he “had to negotiate a number of things in order to create the various different divisions.”
