Ben Carson nominated for housing secretary

Hosted by

The incoming administration announced another cabinet choice today: Doctor Ben Carson to be Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. He's a retired neurosurgeon and former candidate for President until he gave his support to Donald Trump. Here's an excerpt from Carson on Fox News late last month. Emily Badger, who covers urban policy for "The Upshot" at the New York Times, says the choice was a surprise to many – and for many a cause for concern.
