Carson said that he didn’t feel qualified for a Cabinet position. But that hasn’t stopped Trump from offering him a position. And Ben said that he would consider it. What do you guys think? Is Ben right for the job?
According to the report, Carson, who also ran for the Republican presidential nomination and has no background in housing policy, will consider the post over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Trump had tweeted earlier that he was mulling over selecting Carson to lead the department, which oversees affordable housing, fair housing laws, funding for development projects, homelessness initiatives and other programs:
I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I've gotten to know him well–he's a greatly talented person who loves people!

Carson was asked about Trump’s tweet during an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Tuesday.
“We’ve had offers,” he said. When asked if HUD was one of them, he said yes.
