Video: Ben Carson indicates regret for Trump endorsement

CarsonIt seems that retired neurosurgeon and former GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson may have some regrets over his endorsement of media mogul Donald Trump and indicated that he may have preferred another candidate, according to an interview he gave Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg.
