Ben Carson Gives GOP Dire Warning: Make Trump The Nominee Or Face 'Absolute Destruction'

Dr. Ben Carson on Monday warned the Republican Party that it faced "absolute destruction" if Donald J. Trump was not the nominee for president in 2016.

Dr. Ben Carson on Monday warned the Republican Party that it faced "absolute destruction" if Donald J. Trump was not the nominee for president in 2016.

"I can tell you this," Carson said during an appearance on Fox & Friends. "If there are shenanigans, if it's not straightforward, all of those millions of people that Donald Trump has brought into the arena are not going to stay there."

"And the Republicans are going to lose," he added. "And it's going to be not only the presidency, but it's going to be the Senate, and it could even be the House. It's going to be absolute destruction."

Carson noted that Republican Party bosses would have to decide if "they are more concerned about maintaining control and their positions or are they more concerned about America."

"And if they're more concerned about America, they will not blow up a straightforward process," he insisted. "They will let the will of the people prevail."
