Dr. Ben Carson said Trump is victim of Democrat and liberal smear campaign, and called for Republicans to “stand by their candidate”!
Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson told Newsmax Saturday that Donald Trump is the victim of a vicious smear campaign by Democrats and liberal media and urged Republicans to stand by their candidate.
In an exclusive interview, Carson said he’s spoken “multiple times” to Trump over the last 12 hours and described the candidate and his team as “resolute” about going forward.
Carson himself will be at the debate hall Sunday night for the second scheduled presidential debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Carson said he believed the tape’s release may have been timed to head off damaging revelations about Clinton in emails and other files obtained by the hacker group Wikileaks.
He said he wasn’t surprised that the sex tape completely overshadowed the release of files Friday night that contained details from Clinton’s secret speeches to Wall Street groups. Among the revelations: Clinton said she wanted to create a nation of “open trade and open borders.”
“I’m not seeing anything that I didn’t totally expect,” Carson said. “The political class and the media has to make this about Donald Trump. They cannot make this about the issues.
“They’re getting desperate because they’re seeing the crowds that Trump is attracting. They see the enthusiasm gap between the candidates and they know how that’s going to translate on Election Day. Their goal is now is to dribble out all of these things like this tape.
Carson urged Trump’s supporters to remember that the direction is about the “direction of the country” – not Trump or Hillary Clinton.
“It’s about the elites and the status quo being desperate to maintain their position and this direction vs. a change in direction that’s desperately needed.”
