President-elect, Donald Trump has said he’s “thrilled to nominated” Dr. Ben Carson to be the next Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Dr Carson was a former rival of Mr Trump for the Republican Party presidential nominee. And as a former rival Dr. Carson was also a victim of Mr Trump’s denigrate. He once referred to him as “super low energy”. But he now praises him as “tough competitor” who never gives up.
If approved by congress Dr. Carson will oversee federal public housing programmes and help enact policies on homelessness and housing discrimination. Mr Trump said he had discussed with Mr Carson about “my urban renewal agenda and our message of economic revival, very much including our inner cities.”
