Republican front-runner Donald Trump told “Morning Joe” hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough that he “absolutely” wants to hire fellow candidate Ben Carson in his administration during a Friday interview.
TRUMP: I know him. I like him, and we have a pretty good relationship. I’m sure at some point he’ll hit me, you know, it’s one of those things. But so far, we’ve had a very good relationship … Will anybody be able to do the job I’m going to do? Absolutely not …
SCARBOROUGH: Would you hire him in your administration?
TRUMP: I would, yes, I would. Absolutely. I would put him — I’d love to have that … In certain elements of an administration, I think he’d be very good.
