The former neurosurgeon’s candidacy has been touted as a possible contender for the Republican nomination, but he has not yet announced any of his policies, including which party he will support.
The retired neurosurfer, who retired in 2016 after a 10-year career at Johns Hopkins University, said on Friday he was “not going to get into the political realm” but that he would vote for the GOP in the general election.
Carson has made the announcement that he will run for president on his Facebook page, along with the following two images: a picture of him at a party with President Donald Trump, and a picture showing him posing with a whiteboard.
In an interview with CBS, Carson said he does not have any policies on the issue of immigration.
He said he would support legislation to reduce immigration, but said that the president of the United States has the power to control immigration, and he would try to keep that power.
“I’m not going to try to change the immigration policy,” he said.
“I think the president has the ability to determine what happens.
But I think it’s incumbent on him to do so.”
In addition to the policy stances, Carson has said he supports a national gun registry and a requirement that all gun sales be background checks, though he has said that he is open to allowing the sale of firearms to individuals with a permit.
Carson also has said there should be a national registry of mental illness, and said that his view of the condition should be one of the criteria for a candidate to be considered for president.
“You want to get people who are suffering, and it’s a big issue in the country.
I believe it should be part of the [presidential] search,” he told CBS.
Cristofield said he did not know the details of Carson’s plans.
“What he is proposing would be a very conservative proposal to reduce the number of gun deaths,” he added.
However, he noted that Carson’s policies could result in more gun deaths than the current federal rate of 2,200 per 100,000 people.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are more than 1.4 million Americans living with a mental illness.
