Dr. Ben Carson has been getting offered money and political support to drop out of the 2016 presidential race, he confirmed this morning.
“The machine in Washington is extremely complicated and complex. It is corrupt,” he told Maria Bartiromo.
“People say, ‘Well, that’s just the way it is, and we just have to accept that.’ I don’t think we have to accept that. I think there is such a thing as right and wrong.”
The “decline” in this country, Carson argued, is caused by people giving away their “values and principles” in exchange for “political correctness and political power.”
“I’m just hoping and praying that we will wake up,” said the GOP presidential candidate.
“That’s what millions of my supporters are saying. ‘Please don’t give in. Please don’t give in to the system. Please fight for us.’ And I’m going to do that.”
The retired neurosurgeon also laid out what he sees as the country’s biggest economic problems and his plan to fix them.
