Dr. Ben Carson went on NBC’s “Meet the Press” yesterday morning, and Chuck Todd thought that he might get a little fight going when he asked that Carson address Donald Trump’s latest campaign rally “incident” when an audience member referred to President Obama as a Muslim.
Instead, Chuck Todd got a different kind of answer.
Responding to a question on “Meet the Press,” the retired neurosurgeon said, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”
He also said that Islam, as a religion, is incompatible with the Constitution.
Carson, who is near the top of several early presidential polls, said a president’s faith should matter depending on what that faith is. “If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter,” he clarified.
Carson went on to elaborate in another interview.
