There's no role for Ben Carson in Donald Trump's administration

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson will not be taking a position in President-elect Donald Trump's administration.

Carson business manager Armstrong Williams tells The Associated Press that Carson has opted out of being considered for any cabinet or other administration positions, including leading the Department of Health & Human Services and the Department of education.

Carson had never been formerly offered a position in the Trump administration, but Williams says the president-elect had made clear he wanted his former rival-turned-adviser in some role.

Williams says Carson "always knew that he could be more effective with the president-elect outside the administration."
