    Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson endorsed former President Donald Trump's 2024 presidential campaign during an Iowa rally on Sunday.

    Carson, who ran for the Republican Party's presidential nomination in 2016 and subsequently served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development for nearly four years in the Trump administration, gave the GOP frontrunner his "most confident and full endorsement" while introducing him at a campaign rally in Sioux City, Iowa.

    "Benjamin Franklin was asked in 1787 after they finished the Constitutional Convention, 'Sir, what do we have here? A monarchy or a republic?' He said, 'A republic, if you can keep it.' The way we can keep it is we can put Donald J. Trump back in office," Carson told the crowd.

    The former GOP candidate blasted the Biden administration's border policies and told the crowd that under Trump, the United States had a secure border. Carson said it's almost certain that terrorists have flowed through the border during Biden's three years in office, quipping it would be "terrorist malpractice" if they weren't already planning something.

    He also touted Trump's record on energy, the protection of freedom of speech, and the lower prices of consumer goods and gasoline during his administration. Carson said that during his 2016 campaign, he found that while most Americans had "common sense," they didn't always have the "courage" to say what they believed.

    "But one man had the courage to take on the political establishment and give the people a voice in Washington, with no concern about what it would cost him," Carson said. "Donald Trump lost millions if not billions of dollars. And he's been attacked constantly and demonized, and yet, he's still there. They haven't gotten rid of him. They're trying to do everything in their power to get rid of him. Because he's the biggest threat to the administrative state and to the swamp - I don't call it a swamp, I call it a cesspool."


    On Truth Social, Trump said it was a "great honor" to receive Carson's endorsement. The former president told the crowd he was confident that he would win Iowa because of his policies that he said helped farmers, the Associated Press reported.

    According to RealClearPolitics, Trump's polling average in Iowa is 48.8%, well ahead of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis's 17.3% and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley's 11.5%. Trump also holds the lead in the national GOP primary average of polls.
