Ben Carson has gone on the attack against those who claim that President Trump is a racist. Appearing on Fox News, he said that he knows the president very well and he is not racist at all and that his recent tweet was a push back against those members of congress that hates America.
Besides, Trump specifically said for them to come back and show us how it’s done. Dr. Carson also pointed out that the unemployment rates for Blacks and Hispanics are the lowest they’ve ever been.
He could have also pointed to the reductions in home foreclosures and the poverty level for Blacks and Hispanics that rose so high under Obama.

“Well, you know, I have an advantage of knowing the president very well, and he’s not a racist and his comments are not racist,” Carson said.
The four members known as “the squad” have made controversial commentswidely perceived as anti-American, slamming law enforcement agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and harshly criticizing American allies such as Israel.
“He loves the country very much and, you know, he has a feeling that those that represent the country should love it as well,” Carson said.
