Carson Says He and Trump Agree on the Issues

Ben Carson disclosed Wednesday that he holds many of the same views another Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has been criticized for espousing.

“The things we talk about are very similar. He gets a lot more media attention,” the retired pediatric neurosurgeon told The Blaze. According to The Hill, he suggested Trump’s early success in the campaign proves that many Republicans want the party to nominate an outsider.

“As the political process plays out with the various debates, people will get a chance to see people like me and like Carly,” Carson said, referring to former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. “They will begin to recognize that there are other people who have intelligence, initiative and aren’t part of the political class.”

He continued: “From what I’ve seen as I travel the country and see the size of the crowds and the enthusiasm of the crowds, I do believe this is a breakout year. That’s exactly what Thomas Jefferson said. He said just before we turn into another form of government, the people would awaken and they would regain control. I certainly hope this is it.”

Carson accused the Democratic presidential front-runner, Hillary Clinton, of being the ultimate Washington insider. “From what I’ve seen so far, she is a political animal with a very different value system than I have,” he said.
