Ben Carson Calls Racism Today ‘A Joke’, Claims Trump ‘Believes In The Principles Of Loving Your Neighbor’





HUD Secretary Ben Carson on Friday claimed President Donald Trump “believes in the principles of loving your neighbor” and also called racism today “a joke.”

Speaking at a Trump campaign event on Black Economic Empowerment, Carson claimed that Trump, who has often made racist and sexist comments both as a candidate and in the presidency, “believes in the principles of loving your neighbor, of caring about the poor.”



Carson also called racism a “joke compared to what I grew up with.”

“You know, they talk about racism now,” he told the audience. “Racism now, that is a joke, you know, compared to what I grew up with, that is a joke. And guess what, everything won’t be racism after the election.”





He went on to claim that the president “doesn’t engage in a lot of identity politics.”
