Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson blames “PC culture”

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says “P.C. culture” is to blame for the fallout over his statement against electing a Muslim president.

Carson tells reporters in Ohio on Tuesday that his view is that anyone wanting to be president must embrace the Constitution and American principles. He says anyone who does can be president. Carson adds that would also oppose a Christian for president who wanted to establish a theocracy.

To recover from the controversy, the retired neurosurgeon said he’d have to fix “a P.C.”— or politically correct — “culture.”

Carson called the Muslim president issue a “theoretical” question that’s distracting from important problems.
