Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson was asked to leave Baltimore’s Morning Star Baptist Church of Christ by a staff member, who claimed Trump’s cabinet secretary had not sought permission to use the church’s vacant lot.
Carson, a neurosurgeon who worked at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for more than three decades defended President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on Rep Elijah Cummings (D-Md).
“There are problems and we can’t sweep them under the rug,” Carson stated, likening certain parts of Baltimore to a patient with cancer who you can dress up and “put a nice suit on it and you can try to ignore it, but that cancer is going to have a devastating effect,” reported NPR.
According to Carson, Trump is “very willing” to work with Cummings on solutions.
