Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump this morning at a press conference at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
At a news conference at a Trump-owned luxury club in Florida, Carson called his former rival both “Donald” and “Mr. Trump” and described him as a thoughtful and “cerebral” figure — an image at odds with Trump’s often combative and bluster-filled appearances on the campaign trail.
Carson, however, acknowledged that the country is greatly divided and “hating each other” — rifts that have been amplified by the current presidential race.
Trump said Carson will a “big, big part” in the campaign, but gave no specifics on possible roles.
