Carson: Trump Better Than The Alternative

Ben Carson spoke on Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show" about the worst possible outcome if Donald Trump were to win the presidency. Carson said, “The way I look at it, even if Donald Trump turns out not to be such a great president — which I don’t think is the case, I think he’s going to surround himself with really good people — but even if he didn’t, we’re only looking at four years. Opposed to multiple generations and perhaps the loss of the American dream forever.”

He also urged establishment Republicans to stop blocking Trump by saying, “If we go to a system where we have a brokered convention or something that thwarts the will of the people, the Republican Party will be so fractured that there is no way, I don’t care who you put in there, that we’re going to win. And not only are we not going to win the presidency, but we’re probably going to lose the Senate. Now we’re going to have a situation where the progressives get two to four more Supreme Court picks, and we will have lost big time. The reason that I’m choosing Trump is that I’m a big picture guy. I recognize that he’s bringing in a lot of people who were not interested in coming in before.”

In addition, Carson slammed the recent violent protests at Trump rallies. Carson said, “I think we stand up vigorously and say, ‘This is un-American, what you’re trying to do by trying to suppress someone else’s ability to speak is not according to our Constitution and in particular our Bill of Rights. [We need] to say this forcefully, and this needs to come from multiple sources. I think the Democrats need to be saying this too. This is, as far as I’m concerned, not a partisan issue."
