Julián Castro Calls For Ben Carson To Resign As HUD Secretary

October 16, 2019

Julián Castro is calling for the current Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to resign following comments that Ben Carson made, which reportedly showed a lack of concern for transgendered people. 

 

"The comments that Secretary Carson, my successor, made a couple of weeks ago are shameful. When you’re housing secretary, you’re there to serve everybody. And his comments made clear that he’s not able to serve everybody," Castro said at the event, according to Reverse Mortgage Daily.

 

"I believe that he should resign because of that, because he can’t serve everybody."

 

A detailed report of the comments by the Washington Post also revealed that as many as 50 HUD staffers were "visibly upset" by Secretary Carson's remarks. 

 

"Castro also responded to the initial report on Twitter shortly after it was published."
