Controversial remarks seem to only help Carson's bid
Washington CNN  — 

Donald Trump plans to start attacking Ben Carson because the retired neurosurgeon has risen in the polls, Trump said Wednesday.

ABC “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos asked the Republican front-runner if he would go after Carson now that he’s gaining on the media mogul in the polls.

“Probably. At some point, yes, which I actually look forward to doing,” Trump said, adding that at the moment, “I can’t do it. He’s been so nice to me.”

Trump said Carson’s lack of experience in foreign policy would be his main focus of attack.

“Ben is a doctor. That’s what he’s been doing. The question is, ‘Is he capable of negotiating with China, Russia and Iran?’ And there’s a lot of things that have to do with capacity and experience,” he said.
