Dr Ben Carson has endorsed Donald Trump and alluded to being led by God to do so.
Dr Carson, who was responding to a reporter’s question at a news conference in Florida yesterday (11 March 2016) said: “I prayed about it a lot and I got a lot of indications, people calling me that I haven’t talked to for a long time saying, “I had this dream about you and Donald Trump.”
“(Laughs) It’s an amazing thing!”
“But I also tend to think that the way God speaks to you is by giving you wisdom. And that wisdom says to me that if we allow this attempt to disrupt the will of the people to be successful, it will fracture the party in an irreparable way and that will hand the election to people who I personally believe would destroy our country.”
“And the reason I say that is because, you know, Hilary Clinton was a great friend of Saul Alinsky. She was on a first name basis with him when she was a student. Saul Alinsky wrote the book ‘Rules for Radicals’. And if you have never read it, I recommend that you read it and see the kinds of things that (Alinsky) recommended to fundamentally change this nation from the great success that we have to a socialist country.”
“And the dedication page of that book says, ‘Dedicated to Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom‘. I don’t want anything to do with anything like that.”
To another reporter’s question as to why he did not endorse Senator Ted Cruz instead, Dr Carson said: “Because I feel that Mr Trump is willing to do what needs to be done to break the stranglehold of special interest groups and the political class.”
