Trump Won’t Rip Carson: ‘He’s Been So Nice to Me’

Though he predicts he will eventually criticize Ben Carson, Donald Trump is holding off on blasting his political rival because he is too “nice,” Newsmax reported.

The real-estate mogul said Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America”: “He’s been so nice to me, I can’t do it.”

Trump has not hesitated to rip several of his other challengers for the Republican presidential nomination, including Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. However, he has declined to go after Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon who has been soaring in national surveys of GOP voters.

According to a newly released Fox News poll, Trump’s lead over Carson is just 24 percent to 23 percent. Considering the poll’s margin of error, the two candidates are locked in a virtual tie. Each of the other contenders has less than 10 percent support.

The pollsters found that Republicans consider Carson more ethical than any of the other candidates. The doctor enjoys the most voters pledging to “definitely” vote for him, according to Newsmax.

Trump responded: “I’ve been number one for a long time and I’m number one in every poll, in most cases by very big numbers, in double-digit numbers. (Carson) has been getting a lot of ink on the Muslims and other things, and I guess people look at that and they probably like it. Some people thought they wouldn’t like it, but they probably do.”
