Ben Carson says the United States must do more to help solve the Syrian crisis, but that bringing 25,000 refugees from the conflict to the U.S. will "do nothing."
The Republican presidential candidate was in Jordan this weekend, where he visited a refugee camp and met with medical professionals, humanitarian workers and government officials. Campaign officials told ABC News that Carson was traveling to Jordan on a "fact finding and information gathering mission."
"These brave people want nothing more than an end the war in Syria. They want to go back to their lives. We must find a political end to this conflict. Millions of refugees have now been waiting for years for the end of the war to come in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey," Carson said in a statement released to ABC News.
President Obama said Sunday that the international climate summit this week in Paris is a chance for world leaders to show that terrorism will not succeed in stopping them from "building a better future for our children."
Leaders from more than 180 countries are expected to attend the summit, working towards wide-ranging actions on climate change, but with the terror attacks on Paris two weeks ago, the fight against ISIS is also expected to take a central spot. Obama has private meetings scheduled with several leaders, including French President Francois Hollande.
"It's an opportunity to stand in solidarity with our oldest ally, just two weeks removed from the barbaric attacks there, and reaffirm our commitment to protect our people and our way of life from terrorist threats," President Obama said in a post on his Facebook.
