Carson: Voters ‘Overlook’ Trump’s ‘Language’ and ‘Wildness’

According to Ben Carson, many people who support Donald Trump’s candidacy are willing to accept the billionaire’s faults because they believe he could keep the country safe if elected president.

The retired pediatric brain surgeon, one of Trump’s rivals for the Republican nomination, told Newsmax TV: “They may overlook some of his views on things that are considered conservative or liberal. They may overlook his language. They may overlook a lot of things that normally would be pertinent, because they say it’s more important that we find somebody who can protect us — and they equate wildness and stomping of the feet with being able to protect them. It’s not what I would use, but everybody’s entitled to communicate the way they want to.”

Carson, acknowledging Trump’s success on the campaign trail, added: “It seems to be working. Everything he does seems to work. You can’t really say it’s not working if it is.”

Political pundits considered Carson, who had never before sought public office, a long-shot when he entered the race. However, he steadily rose in the polls and briefly challenged Trump for the lead. In recent months, several other candidates have pushed Carson farther down in the polls.
