Is this a good idea? Ben Carson just suggested someone as Trump’s possible future Attorney General that is causing a lot of controversy.
Ben Carson on Wednesday floated Ted Cruz as a possible attorney general in a Donald Trump administration, noting that it could allow Cruz to prosecute Hillary Clinton.
“I think he would be terrific on the Supreme Court, or I think he would be a terrific attorney general. Or he could be both,” Carson told Fox News Radio’s John Gibson.
Carson was asked whether it would be “smart” for Trump, now the presumptive GOP nominee, to nominate Cruz to the Supreme Court.
“He could be attorney general first, you know, go ahead and prosecute Hillary, and then go on the Supreme Court,” Carson added.
Carson admitted that there are “deep wounds” though and it may “take a little while for that to occur.”
