Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said Sunday that Christians shouldn’t judge presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump based on his behavior toward women.
“As a Christian, what I do is not judge everybody,” Carson said in response to a question about whether he was comfortable with the way Trump treats women.
“And that seems to be something that a lot of people have got into. ‘I’m better than you are.’ Give me a break. Let’s just stop for a moment.
“And I’m talking to conservatives,” Carson continued.
Carson defended the presumptive GOP nominee, saying he “elevated” a lot of women in his organization before others “began to recognize the value of women.”
Carson said people should look at where we are as a country and “what we have to do.”
“What your feelings are personally about a person is irrelevant. What we need to be talking about [is] your children and your grandchildren’s future. Think about that and make the right choice,” he said.
Carson also slammed the media, saying they were not “on the side of the people,” while talking about a New York Times article published Sunday about how Trump treated women in private.
