Carson: I’m Open to Being Trump’s VP
Ben Carson may have gotten clobbered in New Hampshire, but he suggested on Tuesday that he would be willing to be Trump’s vice president.
“I certainly would sit down and discuss it with him,” he told Fox Business host Neil Cavuto on Tuesday, the day of the New Hampshire primary.
“I would have to have major philosophical alignment with whoever it was,” he said. “I would have to have guarantees that I could do some substantial things.”
The Hill reports:
Carson wouldn’t say which candidates he would not consider running on a ticket with.
“Rather than get into that, let’s say as long as there is significant philosophical alignment, I wouldn’t have any problem,” the former neurosurgeon said.
Ultimately, Carson said his focus is on his presidential campaign.
“I’m aiming to really change this country in the same way that I came up with new ways to do very complex things that people have been trying to do for a long long period of time, that’s what I want to do with this country,” he said.
