In an interview with Newsmax TV, Ben Carson said that Donald Trump promised him a role in his potential administration if he received his endorsement.
Carson said Trump will “surround himself with very good people” and he said he’d be one of them.
Carson said “I will be doing things as well, yes.”
Carson went on to say that he’ll be with Trump in an advisory capacity.
“We haven’t hammered out all the details, but it is very important we work together to save this country,” Carson said.
Asked if that meant a cabinet position, Carson said he couldn’t “reveal any details about it right now, because all of this is still very liquid.”
A day after admitting all of this, Carson tweeted that he stands by his endorsement, which was “principled and not selfish.”
