Trump Appoints Ben Carson As Housing Secretary

By Ikenga Chronicles December 5, 2016

Ben Carson, a black American and a retired neurosurgeon has been appointed as Housing Secretary by President-elect Donald Trump.

Carson thus became the first black American to be appointed by Trump.

“Ben Carson has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities” Trump said in a statement.

“We have talked at length about my urban renewal agenda and our message of economic revival, very much including our inner cities.”

Carson had said last month, “I feel that I can make a significant contribution particularly by strengthening communities that are most in need.”

“We have much work to do in enhancing every aspect of our nation and ensuring that our nation’s housing needs are met.”

“I grew up in the inner city. And have spent a lot of time there. And have dealt with a lot of patients from that area.”
