Monday on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Dr. Ben Carson, former chief of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, said he was one step closer to running for president.
Host Steve Malzberg asked Carson if he was any closer to making a decision to run for president. Carson replied by saying he was currently “in the listening process.”
Carson also said it also depends on the will of the American people to go in the right direction and that he explained could hinge on the Republican Party gaining control of the U.S. Senate in this November’s midterm elections, which he said would be a good indicator they are and would make him more inclined to run.
He also weighed in on whether or not impeachment proceedings such be brought against President Barack Obama. Carson said the president should be impeached if it is found he has broken his constitutional duties by committing high crimes and misdemeanors.
