I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I've gotten to know him well–he's a greatly talented person who loves people!

President-elect Donald Trump said in a tweet that he is seriously considering his former rival in the Republican party, Ben Carson, for Housing and Urban Development (HUD) secretary.
The HUD secretary is tasked to manage federal public housing programs and to lay policies that respond homelessness and housing discrimination. The secretary is also assigned to generate programs pertaining to mortgage insurance and rental subsidies to low-income families.
As a response, Carson is privileged by the event that Trump is earnestly considering him for the position. “He’s a greatly talented person who loves people,” Trump said.
