Carson: Foreign Policy Experience Not That Important

Voters should not elect Hillary Clinton because she is a former secretary of state, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson argued on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I believe that the American people are smart enough to recognize that we’re in a very different time right now, and it’s not necessarily the one who shouts the loudest, it’s not necessarily the one who claims to have all this great experience,” he said, according to Breitbart News. “The fact of the matter is, there’s nobody running who has a great deal of international experience except for Hillary Clinton, and you see where that has led. So that’s not necessarily the thing that has to count. You have to look at a person’s lifetime experiences.”

Carson pointed out that, as a brain surgeon, he has “probably had the most experience making life or death decisions; probably far more 2 a.m. phone calls that anybody else.” He added: “Let’s let the American people decide whether that is the right combination, or maybe the right combination is somebody who has spent a lot of time talking about stuff. We’ll see.”

After rising to the top of some national polls of likely Republican primary voters, Carson has recently fallen farther behind front-runner Donald Trump. The doctor is competing with Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida for second place.
