Donald Trump 'Seriously Considering' Ben Carson for HUD Cabinet Position

This comes after Ben Carson ruled out a position citing lack of experience.

"Dr. Carson has tremendous respect for the president-elect and will always consider whatever request the president-elect makes of him," Williams told ABC News after Carson's meeting with Trump.

When pressed for details about today's meeting, Williams said Trump's tweet speaks for itself.

A week ago, Williams said that the only way Carson would accept a cabinet position was if Trump could not find anyone else.

Carson echoed that sentiment in an interview with the Washington Post last week.

"I’ve said that if it came to a point where he absolutely needs me, I’d reconsider. But I don’t think that’s the situation with these positions," Carson told the Washington Post. "Having me as a federal bureaucrat would be like a fish out of water, quite frankly.”
