Ben Carson: Donald Trump Should Apologize For Birtherism
By The Daily Beast,Sep 06, 2016
Ben Carson thinks it's time for Donald Trump to apologize for leading the "birther" movement against President Barack Obama. On CNN's The Lead Tuesday afternoon, Jake Tapper asked the Trump surrogate if he believes, since, as a "factual matter" Obama was born in the United States, the GOP candidate should "acknowledge that all that birther nonsense was a mistake and to apologize" so that African-American voters might be more receptive to his message. "I think that would be a good idea, absolutely," Carson replied, before saying he thinks "all sides" should remove "hate and rancor" from the political process.
