Dr. Ben Carson Defends Trump’s ‘Go Back’ Tweet: ‘He’s Not a Racist’

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson on Wednesday said President Donald Trump is not racist, nor were his “go back” comments directed at four far-left congresswomen.

“I have an advantage of knowing the President very well and he’s not a racist,” Carson told the Fox News Channel’s America’s Newsroom.”His comments are not racist, but he loves the country very much. And he has a feeling that those who represent the country should love it as well.”

Carson pointed to how the President’s policies have helped minorities benefit from the roaring U.S. economy.

“I think you can see what the President means by looking at his accomplishments,” he said. “Look at his policies. Under this President you see the rising tide lifting all boats. You see low unemployment — record low — for blacks, for Hispanics, for all the demographics of our nation.

“When you have somebody spending this much time and this much effort trying to elevate those who are vulnerable and who are suffering in our society, I think we should pay a lot more attention to what they are doing than to what anyone is saying,” he added.

How about we get rid of this idiot-level sentiment that if someone speaks out, they are not American and should leave. It may make for good tv, but I don't believe many of you realize how #1 this clown show does nothing to move forward on the issues that matter, #2 this "you don't agree so you are anti-american" has been one of the main arguments by polticians to knock down dissent, #3 actually listening to folks who speak out can easily prevent us from walking the US straight into danger. Just look at what happened in Iraq II when so many politicians and pundits marched us right into a pointless war that cost us 5k lives of US service members, a trillion of US tax dollars (actually more when you factor in debt service), all with nothing to show except for an increased terror threat in the region.

1:02 suffereing from TTDS - Trump Derrangement Syndrome? Trump is not an idiot, he is a genius who plays DEMs like a drum. NOTHING in his tweets was racist. He is iplaying the DEMs like a drum. They took a bait now they are on the hook and twitching. Meanwhile his approval ratings went up by 4%. Maybe it's time to tell those 4 Twits of Socialist Squad - if you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

1:02 What are you living under a rock? Either under a rock or you are one incredibly ignorant fool. First off President Trump has done more in 2 yrs then any other President in history. Just look at unemployment numbers for an example. And how many jobs he has created. Secondly the democrats are NOT going to "move forward on the issues that matter" NO MATTER WHAT. And if you think otherwise you are a fool. They are going to try and distract, block, impede, nischaracterize, lie about everything this President wants and tries to do.
