Carson Would Do Away With Iran Deal

On "Meet the Press" Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson discussed the Iran deal by saying it was "perhaps the worst deal in the history of America." Carson said he would get rid of it on day one as president because the deal does not have any verification, accountability or enforcement, the markers of a good deal. He then criticized the U.S. for allowing Iran to obtain ballistic missiles and not dismantling their nuclear infrastructure by stating "We've not stopped anything, except we are now starting a nuclear arms race in the region. It is perhaps the worst deal in the history of America. It kicks the can down the road and makes it a problem for somebody else."

Carson added that Trump's candidacy has been "a tremendous help" to his own candidacy, because "fewer people are talking about my lack of political experience now. And that's good." Host Chuck Todd then asked "Do you worry though that right now, the way our media climate works [with] social media ... only the loudest voices, only the most controversial rhetoric is what gets attention, and then people get bumps in the polls?" Carson responded "I believe that something different will happen in 2016," said Carson, because "the majority of people" in America realize that "we're going off track in the wrong direction."

Todd also asked Carson why he had called the "black lives matter" movement "silly." Carson replied "What I call 'silly' is political correctness gone amok. When ... Martin O'Malley said 'black lives matter, white lives matter,' he got in trouble for that and had to apologize? That's what ... is silly. Of course all lives matter, and of course we should be very concerned about what's going on, particularly in our inner cities. It's a crime for a young black man [that] the most likely cause of death is homicide. That is a huge problem that we need to address in a very serious way." He went on to say "Certainly in cases where police are doing things that are inappropriate, we ought to investigate those promptly and justice should be swift."
