Ben Carson: If Donald Trump Is a Wack President, 'We're Only Looking at 4 Years'

"We're only looking at four years."

Published March 15, 2016

Ben Carson is urging America not to worry about a Donald Trump presidency because it would be a four-year term at best.

“They way I look at it, even if Donald Trump turns out not to be such a great president — which I don’t think is the case, I think he’s going to surround himself with really good people — but even if he didn’t, we’re only looking at four years,” Carson, who endorsed Trump last week after dropping out of the presidential race after Super Tuesday, said on NewsMax TV.  

Carson went on to describe Trump as a people person.

“The reason that I’m choosing Trump is that I’m a big picture guy,” he said. “I recognize that he’s bringing in a lot of people who were not interested in coming in before.”

Like the protesters who have recently become a part of the GOP frontrunner’s rallies, protesters Carson condemns as “un-American” and thinks should be punished.

“I think we stand up vigorously and say, ‘This is un-American, what you’re trying to do by trying to suppress someone else’s ability to speak is not according to our Constitution and in particular our Bill of Rights,’” the retired pediatric neurosurgeon said of the protesters.

“[We need] to say this forcefully, and this needs to come from multiple sources,” Carson added about the protesters’ being held accountable for their actions. “I think the Democrats need to be saying this too. This is, as far as I’m concerned, not a partisan issue.”
