Ben Carson: Detroit ‘Once the Most Prosperous City in America,’ Now ‘the Biggest Bankruptcy After Decades of Progressive Leadership’
Dr. Ben Carson joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily to offer a preview of Donald Trump’s upcoming interview with Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Detroit for the Impact Network.
“Clearly he wants to emphasize the fact that education is a huge part of success in America,” said Carson. “It really doesn’t matter what a person’s racial or economic background is. If they get a good education, they pretty much can write their own ticket.”
“And yet, we have huge pockets of failure, particularly in our inner cities, with schools that simply are dysfunctional, and local politicians who protect those schools, rather than do what’s necessary to improve those schools,” he lamented.
Carson, who was born and raised in Detroit, said Trump would be “talking about school choice and vouchers, but also about economics.”
“You know, Detroit is a perfect place to talk about it, because it was once the most prosperous city in America, and from there has gone on to become the biggest bankruptcy after decades of progressive leadership,” he mused.
“That should tell anybody – Democrat, Republican, independent – that there’s something wrong with the course that’s been staked out on, and that you really need to stop and do something different,” Carson added. “You know, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. We’ve got to stop being insane and start exercising common sense.” – READ MORE
