Dr. Ben Carson on Friday endorsed Donald Trump for US president, dealing a big blow to those desperately trying to prevent Trump from clinching the Republican ticket.
Carson dropped out of the race after suffering embarassingly low poll numbers.
Endorsing Trump on Friday, he said:
“I have known Donald for many years. He is a successful businessman who has built a recognizable global brand that no one can question.
“His experience as a businessman is exactly what we need to move our economic engine in the right direction.”
