Wallace Asks Carson About Those Who Say He Has No Chance in 2016
2016 Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson joined Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" to discuss everything from the profound influence his mother had on him to the power of the U.S. Supreme Court.
"She had the biggest impact of any human being on my life, because she refused to be a victim and she refused to let me and my brother become victims," Carson said of his mother.
"I began to realize that the person who has the most to do with what happens to you in life is you. Not somebody else and not the environment," Carson explained.
As for the 2016 race, Wallace pointed out that one of the knocks on Carson is that he has never run for or held political office.
"Experience can come from a variety of different places," Carson said. "There’s real life experience, and there’s politics. Politics, you know, there’s some good people in the political arena, but I’m not sure that they actually, in many cases, understand real life."
Wallace revealed that the question he got the most when he told people he would be interviewing Carson was, "He doesn't really think he has a chance to become president, does he?"
"My life has been so full of people telling me what I couldn’t do that I would be more concerned if people told me I could do it," Carson said.
Wallace also asked Carson to clarify comments he made last week about the president’s obligation to carry out laws passed by Congress.
Carson said that the principle of judicial review - the Supreme Court's ability to rule laws unconstitutional - should be reconsidered.
"This is an area we need to discuss. We need to get into a discussion of this, because it has changed from the original intent. It is an open question," Carson stated.
