Trump Names Ben Carson to HUD Post
President-Elect Trump has named retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson as secretary of housing and urban development. Carson was a 2016 Republican presidential candidate. Raised in poverty in inner-city Detroit, he was head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for nearly three decades, rising to national fame in 1987 when he led the first successful separation of twins conjoined at the head.
