Ben Carson has been one of Donald Trump’s most stalwart supporters. And now, it appears that he is about to be rewarded. He might be given a position in the Trump administration, but the job Trump has in mind for him is not the one people expected him to get.
Carson has revealed that he has been offered a job as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. This is likely due to his experience throughout the campaign discussing the problems facing inner-cities and the black community. “Our inner cities are in terrible shape,” Carson said. “And they definitely need some real attention… So it is certainly something that has been a long term interest of mine.”
“I know that I grew up in the inner city,” Carson said. “And I recognize that we can not have a strong nation if we have weak inner cities.”
Trump verified that he is considering Carson for the position.
I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I've gotten to know him well–he's a greatly talented person who loves people!

The press response to this appointment should be interesting, considering that Trump has repeatedly been accused of racism by members of the media. It’s a pick that will surely force these so-called journalists to confront their own bias.
