Trump 'seriously considering' Carson for HUD

NEW YORK (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump says he is "seriously considering" retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Trump's announcement on Twitter comes a week after Carson let it be known that he is not interested in being considered for any position in the Trump administration.

In Tuesday's tweet, Trump says: "I am seriously considering Dr. Ben Carson as the head of HUD. I've gotten to know him well — he's a greatly talented person who loves people!"

Last week, Carson business manager Armstrong Williams said Carson had opted out of being considered for any position, including as head of the Department of Health and Human Services or the Education Department.

Williams also said Trump had made clear he wanted his rival-turned-adviser in some role.
