Last week, Donald Trump said that he would “absolutely” bring his GOP rival Ben Carson on as part of his presidential administration if he were to win the 2016 election. Yesterday, Carson returned the compliment, telling Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg that he thought Trump “could bring some wisdom” to a Carson administration.
“I think Donald Trump is a very talented individual,” Carson said. “He certainly knows how to take advantage of situations, there’s no question about that, and I believe he could bring some wisdom somewhere along the line. I think there would be room for him somewhere.”
Carson wasn’t clear on what role Trump would fill with his wisdom, but suggested that perhaps the billionaire could act as a presidential adviser.
