- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump thinks his rival Ben Carson a lot of things have to explain about his alleged past West Point and other childhood memories that have recently come under the magnifying glass to lie. Trump said Sunday on NBC's program " Meet the Press."
Carson, a favorite among conservative activists, throws the polls with Trump highest eyes for the Republican nomination in the US presidential election in November 2016. His oft-told story that he was a scholarship was offered for the prestigious US Military Academy at West Point and other memories from his difficult childhood in Detroit, are now subject to doubt.
Trump questioned the explanation that Carson gave his troubled childhood in an autobiography. " If you have a pathological condition, then that is a problem. He wrote it, I did not write ", said Trump. Earlier this week gave Carson that he never admitted to West Point and had not been fair.
Replying to a question from CNN's " State of the Union " or Carson has been honest about his past, Trump replied : " I just do not know. " The 64-year-old Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, complained that he is being vetted by the media in a way that spared other presidential candidates.
