(AmericanProsperity.com) – Former presidential candidate and Republican leader Ben Carson endorsed former president Donald Trump on October 29. During a speech in Iowa, Carson introduced the leading 2024 GOP presidential candidate as a “friend of America,” and said he could beat President Joe Biden in what would be a rematch of the 2020 presidential election.
Carson, who was the US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under the Trump administration, said Trump is the only politician who can currently “fix our country.” He also said the former commander-in-chief can “Make America great again” because he believes in the right to bear arms, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.
The former presidential candidate pointed out that Trump is a brave leader as he has fought against the “political establishment” and suffered the consequences. Carson explained that Trump has lost millions of dollars and has been constantly attacked and demonized. However, he said that the former president remains the greatest threat to the “swamp” and the administrative state.
Following his speech, Carson reiterated his endorsement of the former commander-in-chief in a Twitter post. The former presidential candidate wrote that the United States is “in desperate need” of a strong leader who can fight for all Americans. He also said that Trump is the only candidate who can guarantee the country’s future and recover its freedom and safety.
According to different polls, the former president remains the favorite to win the GOP nomination, even when he’s currently facing 91 criminal charges. On October 30, the FiveThirtyEight national polling average showed that Trump has a support of 57 percent among Republicans.
Another poll from USA TODAY/Suffolk University revealed that Trump and President Biden are currently tied with 37 percent of support each. However, the pollster explained that the former commander-in-chief has a bigger chance of winning as more voters feel enthusiastic about him. The survey showed that the Republican leader scored an average of 7.1 in voter enthusiasm, while Biden scored 6.28.
