Trump Taps Ben Carson for Cabinet Post

President-elect Donald Trump has officially tapped Ben Carson for a Cabinet post. “I am thrilled to nominate Dr. Ben Carson as our next secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,” Trump said early Monday morning. “Ben Carson has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities.” Word leaked more than a week ago that Carson might be chosen for the position, but Trump was silent on the move until Monday.
