JNS.org – Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has canceled an upcoming trip to Israel and three African nations.

According to the Washington Post, Carson campaign spokesman Doug Watts said in a statement that the “trip has been canceled due to significant security concerns,” without elaborating on the concerns. Carson’s decision comes on the heels of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s decision to also cancel a visit to Israel this month.

A retired neurosurgeon, Carson has seen his poll numbers dip recently over voter concerns that he lacks experience on foreign policy, especially in the wake of the Paris and San Bernardino terror attacks. The upcoming trip was seen as a way to bolster his experience in that area. Carson recently visited Jordan, where he met with Syrian refugees.
