Ben Carson: There’s a ‘real possibility’ violence around Trump will escalate

Ben Carson at Trump Rally

Following a weekend of violent clashes between Donald Trump’s supporters and protesters, former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says he sees the “real possibility” of escalation.

“He actually represents where people are,” Carson said Monday on TODAY, adding that “we have to stop and focus on the real enemy,” such as Islamic terrorism rather than each other.

Carson became the latest rival-turned-supporter of Trump on Friday, saying the two “buried the hatchet” over nasty exchanges over the past few months and have moved on. Carson also said there were “two different” Donald Trumps: the man seen by the public and the “cerebral” side seen in private who “considers thing carefully.”
