Ben Carson Accepts HUD Secretary Position


A spokesperson for Ben Carson confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that Carson was offered the HUD secretary post, and has accepted it, WHEC reports.

President-Elect Trump formally offered the job to the retired neurosurgeon on Tuesday.

His business manager Armstrong Williams said Carson was especially intrigued by the HUD position after being floated as a potential secretary of education or health and human services.



  1. President-elect Donald Trump has not extended an offer to retired neurosurgeon and former presidential rival Ben Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, a Carson spokesman said on Wednesday, disputing a report by the Wall Street Journal.

    “Trump did not make an offer,” Carson spokesman Armstrong Williams told Reuters. “He asked him to consider HUD. Nothing has been offered and no decision has made.”
