He is as brilliant as they come. And has worked at America’s top hospitals and understands the healthcare sysytem very well, the medical insurance system very well. He should have been among Trump’s top advisors on healthcare but he has chosen to stay silent on the matter because he knows one thing: Repealing Obamacare is just a political win for Trump but will negatively affect millions of Americans.
Ben Carson is one of Trump’s top ministers but has decided to stay away from healthcare, has not made a statement to support or not support Trump’s healthcare Manouvre.
Other doctors say that Carson can not publicly endorse Trumpcare because with his experience in american Healthcare he knows how flawed it is. But at the same time he can’t speak out against TrumpCare because he will be immediately fired from his job as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
“He is a trapped man, ” says a top doctor and former colleague of Mr Carson.
