Ben Carson is the personification of Trump corruption and incompetence
Ben Carson is not remotely qualified to be HUD Secretary. He is one of the many corrupt and incompetent persons who Trump has littered his administration with to make sure that the federal government doesn’t operate correctly. Carson has spent his time thinking up ways to hurt the people who he is supposed to be serving at Housing and Urban Development.
Ben Carson has been a disaster for HUD, and it is embarrassing for the country that the person who is supposed to be running the agency doesn’t know what it does.
