(TargetLiberty.org) – Former Trump administration Housing and Development Secretary Ben Carson argued that his former boss, Donald Trump, did not like to have “ ‘yes’ people” surrounding him. 

Carson during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” was asked by Jake Tapper to talk about former President Donald Trump’s position on abortion laws and the conversations he had with him on the matter. In the past, Carson has expressed support for implementing national legislation on abortion. 

Last month Trump argued that he believes abortion laws should be left to the states, following the historic overturning of the landmark Roe v. Wade case. 

Carson argued that Trump enjoyed having “healthy discussions” and did not like having “ ‘yes’ people” around him. He added that Trump had done more to save unborn babies’ lives than any other U.S. president and that this is something that he gives him credit for. He continued by arguing that he agreed with the former President’s assessment that abortion laws needed to be left up to the states. He argued that he completely agreed with the idea of having the states in control and that the reason for this is that abortion laws needed to be part of a discussion between the people and legislators. He added that this is how it was always meant to be. 

Carson had endorsed former President Trump after withdrawing from the 2016 presidential race. At the time there was speculation about the possibility of him being chosen to be Trump’s running mate in 2016, however he was ultimately selected as the Department of Housing and Urban Development head. He has now provided his endorsement to the former President in his third bid for the Oval Office. On Sunday he revealed that he had not had any discussions with Trump about potentially being his running mate, but that he would be willing to have a vice presidential debate against Vice President Kamala Harris.
