Ben Carson Speaks Out About Trump’s Racist Attack Against Trump University Judge

As Donald Trump continues to get hammered for his racist attack against the judge in the multi-million fraud lawsuit against Trump University, one of his most avid supporters, Ben Carson, a former GOP presidential candidate who almost immediately endorsed Trump upon exiting the race, has issued a statement about the matter.

In a statement obtained by CNN on Monday afternoon, Carson said:

“Every human being is an individual first rather than a member of an identity group. The moment we forget that is the moment we enter into a phase of moral descent.” 

Additionally, in a Trump campaign conference call on Monday, sources told CNN that Trump instructed the campaign to continue the attacks against the judge.

Leading Republicans have denounced the racist smear against the judge, including loyal supporters like potential VP running mate Newt Gingrich, who called the attack one of Trump’s “worst mistake” of the campaign yet.

Carson’s strong condemnation is noteworthy from the standpoint that Carson — a strong opponent of political correctness — is not viewing Trump’s attack in the context of political correctness. Instead, he uses words like “moral descent,” which is all but calling Trump onslaught racist.
