REVEALED: Trump Just Promised Former GOP Candidate Prominent Role in His Administration [+video]

By Gerry Urbanek. In an interview Monday on The Steve Malzberg Show, former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson announced that he would be serving in an “advisory capacity” in a Trump administration.

“Now, I do believe, certainly in my discussions with Donald Trump, he does love America and he does want to be successful,” Carson said. “And he will surround himself with very good people.”

As it turns out, the retired neurosurgeon revealed, he would be one of those “very good people” working alongside the billionaire front-runner should Trump win the general election.

He confirmed that he would be “doing things” within a Trump administration, elaborating only that he would be serving “in an advisory capacity.”

“That has been determined?” Malzberg asked. “When you sat down with him, that was discussed?”

Carson confirmed that he discussed the issue broadly with Trump, though he shied away from revealing any specifics. (Read more from “REVEALED: Trump Just Promised Former GOP Candidate Prominent Role in His Administration” HERE)

Carson Actively Lobbying Trump to be His Vice-Presidential Pick

Former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson stunned many when he endorsed Donald Trump for president. Just a few days later, Carson admitted he would not only be advising Trump during the presidential campaign, but could also play a possible role in a Trump administration.

Many speculated this would mean a cabinet position for the retired neurosurgeon, who has displayed a wealth of knowledge both in medicine and education. Yet it seems these speculations might have underestimated Carson.

Today it was announced that members of Carson’s campaign team are planning to meet in Palm Beach, Fla., to discuss the possibility of a Trump/Carson ticket.

The meeting, which will take place March 29, will include Ben Carson Jr., former Carson campaign chairman Robert Dees, ex-campaign manager Ed Brookover, treasurer Logan Delaney, and former senior adviser Mike Murray.

Brookover has recently joined the Trump campaign to lead a “delegate selection team,” suggesting the two sides have a strong working relationship.

According the multiple sources, the group will discuss a vice-presidential push as well as what to do with the 700,000-member mailing list Carson’s campaign compiled. (Read more from this story HERE)


Ted Cruz Pledges to Support Donald Trump Unless He Actually Shoots Someone

By Veronica Stracqualursi and Paola Chaves. Sen. Ted Cruz has vowed to support GOP front-runner Donald Trump if he secures the Republican nomination — but he has one condition.

“I can give you one example where I would no longer support Donald Trump. If for example, he were to go out on Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, I would not be willing to support Donald Trump,” Cruz said today at a press conference in Rockford, Illinois.

Cruz’s reference is to when, back in January, Trump joked at a campaign rally in Sioux Center, Iowa, that his supporters would stand behind him even if he shot someone . . .

When pressed further by reporters, Cruz argued that he is a man who keeps his word.

“I know it is a shocking concept to members of the media. A shocking concept that an elected official actually does what he said. At the outset of this campaign, I committed I will support the Republican nominee. I honor my word,” Cruz said.

    Carson is a good person and will have a calming effect on Trump’s administration. Sometimes it takes a brain surgeon.

    • Craig Kinnowr

      good one

    • Feathers

      Trump can’t ‘remember’ what he says from one day to the next. Can brain surgery fix that?

      • Paulette McCoy

        Better yet, who is going to fix the brain of the brain surgeon, who seems to suffer from a similar malady. I ‘m not endorsing any one, no wait I am endorsing He said there are two Donald’s. Perhaps there are also two Carson’s.

  • wandamurline

    Surgeon General would be a good spot for him and if Trump gets the presidency…I can think of no one better to fill Scalia’s post on the bench than Ted Cruz.

    • Linda

      Amen !

  • CaptTurbo

    Of course Carson shied away from specifics because … Trump doesn’t have any specifics.

    • Nels

      Read Trump’s position papers on his website. They are full of specifics, and they are excellent policies, and they will put a stop to business as usual if implemented. Many of Trump’s specific proposals can be implemented without Congressional action, just by enforcing existing law.

      • CaptTurbo

        Of the few specifics he does supply I can see that he will start trade and currency wars world wide.

        • Nels

          Yes. The US is uniquely positioned to win, and benefit from, a trade war. As for currency wars, the whole world has been engaged in “beggar your neighbor” devaluations since 2008, at least.
          So, start trade wars? We should be so lucky.

          • CaptTurbo

            Dude, you’re an idiot, We are done here.

          • Nels

            The US has a huge trade deficit. How is any country going to retaliate in a trade war? Are they going to refuse to import our products? We have a trade deficit! They are already refusing to import our products! Is China going to refuse to export to us? That would be like you threatening to hold your breath until _I_ turn blue. It’s not going to work, and it’s too stupid for words.
            The US is uniquely positioned to win a trade war, and it would be a huge long term benefit for us to do just that. A trade war would go a long way to restore American manufacturing, American jobs and American national security. Pray for a trade war.
            Turbo, you are too short for this ride. You don’t even know what we’re talking about, let alone have a valid opinion on it.

  • Bill Meeker

    Wanda just got into my head. Bingo! Either way, THIS is the way successful executives become “successful,” by surrounding themselves with brilliant advisors who are experts in their fields. Those who select their advisors based on skin color, gender or friendships are doomed to failure. And those who believe THEY are the “brilliant experts” in all areas are also doomed to failure.

  • NoBamaNoMo

    I would love to see that. Carson is a wonderful person and will be an asset to President Trump’s administration.
    TRUMP 2016!!!

    • Linda

      NoBama BUT Roll Tide ! ha ha

      • NoBamaNoMo

        Linda, Roll Tide Roll….or shall I say Roll Trump Roll!
        TRUMP 2016!!!

        • Linda

          He did here in Huntsville !

          • NoBamaNoMo

            He sure did down here in Mobile !

          • Linda

            Your my neighbor. Live in P’cola. In Huntsville taking care of brother in law with Alzheimer s

  • CSN

    Ben Carson would be the light at the end of the tunnel for a Trump candidacy. He needs more people like Ben to keep him conservative and not to compromise.

  • liberty49

    Yes, Trump will surround himself with good people. Chris Christie would make a great Attorney General, Carson for Surgeon General and Kasich for Sec. of the Treasury.

    • Trey Gowdy for AG..Let Christie stay in NJ…

  • Carson beats Hilary 8–2.He would be a good VP choice..

  • domar1938

    Good people? Can’t get any better (gooder) than Ben.

  • B33r1sg00d

    Awe…he berated a female worker? The Horror, everyone knows they’r a protected demographic…Why I bet he manipulated her to her knees to service him and dipped his cigar while planning a trip to a private Island to rape a child like Hillary’s campaign buddy…

  • Splinter Cell

    lol Cruz for president :). The only candidate that encourages violence is Trump, don’t be fooled conservatives! This GOP primary is dominated by Democrat’s own ‘operation chaos’.

    • WARLOC

      Cruz is owned by the banks and wall street!!!!!

      Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.

      But the couple’s decision to pump more than $1 million into Mr. Cruz’s successful Tea Party-darling Senate bid in Texas was made easier by a large loan from Goldman Sachs, where Mrs. Cruz works. That loan was not disclosed in campaign finance reports.


    I would like to see Ted as VP and Trey Gowdy on the Bench Kristy as AG Palin Homeland Security
