Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson tells Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon he’s in the race for the long haul, adding, “We have a situation in our party where people at the front could easily collapse. Would you want to have a situation where there was no alternative?”

When asked if he meant Donald Trump, said Carson, “Yeah, he could easily collapse … people could start looking very closely at, you know, his beliefs and, you know, people may start looking seriously at the policies that I’ve put out and other people have put out and actually make a serious decision.”

Carson went on to say that a lot of people may not know what his policies are because they don’t go to and he “doesn’t get a lot of media time.”

As far as the debates, Carson said he felt “they did make an attempt to include me” in the last debate and his air time did improve.

Carson added that he is Aiken, SC today. Readers can find his various event locations at this link via his website.

Carson also recently penned a Fox News op ed, “It’s time to declare war on ISIS,” which he discusses earlier in the interview.

For seven years we’ve all watched as America’s global leadership has declined and radical Islamic terrorism spread around the world. The explosion of this global ideology of violent extremism is only accelerating, and innocent men, women and children are paying the price for our ineffective action and failure to lead.

What will it take for America’s leaders to wake up to the true nature of radical Islamic terrorism? Even after horrifying attacks in San Bernardino, Calif. President Obama refuses to acknowledge this threat for what it is: a radical ideology that seeks to violently impose Islam on others and supplant existing cultures and duly constituted governments around the world. We cannot defeat the Islamic State and other brands of radical Islamic terrorism until we confront this truth.
