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!

Well, it turns out that there are more than just two names being considered by President-elect Donald Trump and his team to serve as the secretary of theDepartment of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump Administration.
So far, reports identified Pam Patenaude, who currently serves as the president of theJ. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for Housing America’s Families, and Robert Woodson, who runs the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise in Washington, D.C., as potential HUD secretaries under Trump.
To this point, Trump has not commented on either Patenaude or Woodson, but Trump himself just threw another hat into the HUD ring — Ben Carson.
On Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter and said that he is “strongly considering” Carson, who was among Trump’s opponents in the Republican primary, to serve as HUD secretary.
Trump said that he’s “gotten to know (Carson) well” and feels he is a “greatly talented person who loves people.”
