Dr. Ben Carson told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Wednesday afternoon that the Khan family should apologize to Donald Trump for slandering him.
Trump has taken criticism from many Republican figureheads and leaders for his continued attacks against the family of Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier who died while serving in Iraq.
When Blitzer asked Carson, a staunch Trump supporter, if the business mogul should apologize to the Khans, Carson replied, “I don’t think it would be harmful if they apologized to him and he apologized to them, but I don’t see that happening.”
“Why should they apologize to him?” Blitzer asked.
“Well, for one thing, if you accuse someone of something that’s not true, it usually is a reasonable thing to acknowledge that,” he said. Carson did not elaborate on what the “not true” thing was.
