WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier on Monday, Trump officially named Carson as his nominee for HUD Secretary.
"Hundreds of thousands of veterans live in HUD-assisted housing," the release stated on Monday. "To make their wellbeing subject to the gross unpreparedness of Ben Carson is a complete insult."
The release noted that Carson's own spokesman admitted he does not have the necessary skills to run a government agency.
Initially, Carson ran against Trump for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, but supported Trump after dropping out of the race.
