In an electrifying moment during a campaign rally in Sioux City, Iowa, retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson threw his support behind former President Donald Trump’s bid for the 2024 presidential race. Carson, who once ran for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination and later served as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump administration, introduced the GOP frontrunner and delivered a passionate endorsement.

With the fervor of a true patriot, Carson harkened back to the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin in 1787 when asked about the Constitutional Convention’s outcome. Franklin’s response, “A republic, if you can keep it,” was referenced as Carson emphasized that the key to safeguarding the nation’s republic lies in returning Trump to the presidency.

Carson didn’t hesitate to point out that under Trump’s leadership, America had a secure border. However, in the past three years, the border situation under President Joe Biden has considerably worsened and has grown into a crisis. 

The former GOP candidate didn’t stop with the border. He also lauded Trump’s accomplishments in the realm of energy, the protection of freedom of speech, and the reduction in consumer goods and gasoline prices during his tenure. Carson reminisced about his 2016 campaign, noting that while most Americans possessed common sense, few had the courage to voice their beliefs.

“But one man had the courage to take on the political establishment and give the people a voice in Washington, with no concern about what it would cost him,” he pointed out.

Carson’s fiery speech reached its climax as he declared, “Donald Trump lost millions, if not billions of dollars. He’s been under constant attack and demonization, yet he remains standing. They haven’t succeeded in removing him because he represents the most substantial threat to the administrative state and the swamp. I don’t call it a swamp; I call it a cesspool.”

During the rally, Trump confidently proclaimed that his policies, which aided farmers and bolstered American interests, would secure victory in Iowa. “There’s no way Iowa is voting against Trump,” he stated.

He later took to Truth Social to express his profound gratitude for Carson’s endorsement, calling it a “great honor.”
