Ben Carson Likened Housing Desegregation to “Failed Socialist Experiments” | Mother Jones

Donald Trump has formally asked Carson to be his secretary of housing and urban development.

Trump has selected Ben Carson as his HUD secretary. Carson has zero experience in this area, but he does have opinions. Last year, in an editorial for the Washington Times, he wrote:

“There are reasonable ways to use housing policy to enhance the opportunities available to lower-income citizens, but based on the history of failed socialist experiments in this country, entrusting the government to get it right can prove downright dangerous.”

Carson has not yet confirmed acceptance of the appointment.
