Top Aide to Ben Carson Criticizes Trump. Gets Fired From HUD
Top aide criticizes Trump and gets fired from working with HUD. Apparently, he was critical of Donald Trump while he was running his campaign. Now he is out of a job at HUD.
One of Ben Carson’s top aides is reportedly out of a job at the Department of Housing and Urban Development for being critical of President Donald Trump during the campaign.
The news comes courtesy of the New York Times, which has the details:
A top aide to President Trump’s housing secretary nominee, Ben Carson, was fired and led out of the department’s headquarters by security on Wednesday after writings critical of Mr. Trump surfaced in his vetting, according to two people briefed on the matter.
Shermichael Singleton, who was one of the few black conservatives in the Trump administration, had been working at the Department of Housing and Urban Development since Jan. 23 as a senior adviser. He was preparing a cross-country tour for Mr. Carson, who is expected to be confirmed by the Senate this month.
As the Times article notes, Carson is still awaiting confirmation to serve as HUD Secretary. Singleton, who bills himself on Twitter as Carson’s communications director, had already begun working at HUD.
But not anymore, thanks to some anti-Trump opinions Singleton posted in an article on TheHill.com. read more at housingwire.com
