Ben Carson Declined Any Cabinet Position Especially The Circulating Education Secretary Post RumorBy Loela Jones
Ben Carson who was rumored to be appointed by President-elect Donald Trump is not going to be the Education Secretary nor the Secretary of Health and Human Services. He declined any cabinet position.
Armstrong Williams, a close associate of Carson said that the ex-neurosurgeon and top Trump surrogate will still be Trump's adviser but not on government-level, only privately. He admits that he did not have any experience in running a government agency
However, he seeks to be a contender of the Republican's nominee for president for the next elections. The transition team for the current administration will not comment over any inquiries regarding the matter. Williams confirmed that Dr. Carson is not confident of his governance experience, according to CNN.
Carson thinks that he will never accept a position that would cripple the administration. He would rather work with Donald Trump outside of the public office - but why is he intending to run as the president himself, when he has not enough governance know-how? Is there any other reason for the decline?
Ben Carson does not want to elaborate on the details of the offer but vowed to continue helping Trump's presidency especially among the African-American community dealings which he championed during the campaign period. Most mixed Americans ended up voting for Trump despite his racism comments.
We can expect Ben Carson to do more public speakings and media appearances plus visiting with Trump in the White House but he cannot be held accountable if something goes wrong with the current presidency because he's not officially hired using federal money - but will surely give him media mileage for his quest to be the next president of America, as per CBN News.
