Trump picks Carson to help find running mate
Donald Trump told the New York Times that Ben Carson will be on his selection committee.
Mr. Trump, the Manhattan businessman, said that while he was not committed to making a more conventional political pick in the form of a seasoned politician, he was leaning in that direction.
“I’m more inclined to go with a political person,” Mr. Trump said. “I have business very much covered.”
He added, “I think I’ll be absolutely great on the military and military strategy.”
But the vice presidential choice will probably not come until July, Mr. Trump said. As for the process used to make the selection, he said, “I’ll set up a committee, and that I will do soon.”
“I think on the committee I’ll have Dr. Ben Carson and some other folks,” Mr. Trump said.
