Just one month away from being sworn in as the new Commander-in-chief, President-elect #DonaldTrump has made some controversial decisions as to possible contenders for his Cabinet. Names like Sarah Palin, Rudy Giuliani, Jeff Sessions, Steve Mnuchin and Michael Flynn have come up as potential nominees, despite each of their questionable backgrounds with accusations of discriminatory practices. One name in particular is drawing major concerns after Trump announced who he has in mind to run the Department of #Housing and #Urban Development: Ben Carson. That’s right.

The same political rival who ran against Trump for the Republican nomination, and was compared by Trump to a child molester, is now receiving his blessing to run a major government division single handedly.

Carson questions his own qualifications for political office

A statement was recently released by Trump stating, “I am thrilled to nominate Dr. Ben Carson as our next Secretary of the U.S. department of Housing and Urban Development.

#BenCarson has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities.”

For many, these comments seem to be puzzling and contrary to statements made by both men just a short time ago.

When recently offered a seat in the Cabinet and considered for numerous positions such as Secretary of Education or Secretary of Health and Human Services, Carson turned both down. “Having me as a federal bureaucrat would be like a fish out of water,” stated Carson during an interview with the Washington post.While running for the Republican nomination, the 70-year-old, business tycoon made a number of harmful comments about Carson’s administration just a year ago.

“I think Ben just doesn’t have the experience. It’s not his thing, you know you’re born with. It’s not his thing," commenting during an interview with Good Morning America.

One has to wonder how could a contender for the United States, who has admitted to lacking in political experience, suddenly become an ideal candidate in just a year for a government sector that will largely affect thousands of families for generations to come.

Many are alarmed with the Carson's leadership on housing reform

If chosen, the President-elect’s highest, African-American, political confidant will be responsible with establishing major reforms for inner-city communities and establishing a trusting relationship with African-Americans, a demographic the 65-year-old is not too favorable with.

Many political advocates are alarmed by the possibility of both Trump and Carson having a leadership on housing policy, given Trump’s past facing lawsuits for housing discrimination and Carson’s opposing views against the NAACP on anti-segregation policies.
