HUD Secretary Ben Carson Reveals Plans To Leave Office Following The First Term

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson stated that he will finish out his current term but intends to leave the position to enter the private sector at the end of President Donald Trump's first term.

"A retired neurosurgeon with little experience in housing, Carson was tapped by Trump to lead the department in 2016, a move that divided the housing industry as some balked at his lack of qualifications while others lauded the decision to bring in someone who might offer a unique perspective," according to HousingWire.

Carson's tenure as HUD secretary has been under heavy scrutiny from the inception, including a violation of federal ethics. The report reveals that such scrutiny has Carson rethinking his bid for a second term as HUD Secretary.

"President Donald J. Trump hired me to do a job as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and we are making tremendous progress ensuring our most vulnerable citizens are empowered with a path to self-sufficiency," said Carson, according to HousingWire.

"I always stand ready to serve this great President and the United States of America."
