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.

    Oh yeah Ben Carson lacks foreign policy experience. Obama was fresh out of college and refuses to allow his records to be released. His compadre was Bill Aires and according to the liberal press he was overqualified to handle foreign affairs. You do what proverbs and psalms suggest you surround yourself with experts in the field. And idiot servont Throwing darts at a map would do better at foreign policy than Obama. Obamas foreign experience foundationally is grounded with Islam taking over the world… in that feild he is an expert. So far Obama and his side kick Hillary the harlot have succeeded in destroying the fabric of Europe with refugees. You will not hear that from the liberal press but they will sure pick on the imperfections of Ben Carson one of the best neuro surgeons in the world.

    Doesn’t surprise me. This is the same Dr. Carson who, in his book said the Jews should have known better than to try to establish a country in a part of the world where we weren’t wanted.(Yes–really!) He may be a brilliant surgeon, but politically he’s a fool.
