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.

“I have to look at what is practical,” he said. “I didn’t see a path for Kasich, who I like, or Rubio, who I like. As far as Cruz is concerned, I don’t think that he’s going to be able to draw Independents and Democrats unless he has some kind of miraculous change.”

“I have to look at what is practical and what is going to save this country and the American dream for the next generation. Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes. But that scenario isn’t available,” he added.
