Ben Carson recently endorsed Donald Trump. In the wake of yesterday's violence at a Trump rally in Chicago, the good doctor decided to speak out. His statement:

As footage of fights between Donald Trump supporters and protesters played on loop on cable news networks, Dr. Ben Carson admonished the nation to “always be respectful of one another.”

Carson, a former Republican presidential hopeful who just formally endorsed Trump earlier Friday morning, called the fights that broke out ahead of a scheduled rally in Chicago for the GOP presidential front-runner “very disheartening.”

“We as a nation cannot allow our political differences to divide us and lead to acts of aggression and strife,” Carson said in a statement Friday night. “We must always be respectful of one another and take the time to listen to alternative perspectives. If we do so, I believe that we will discover that things that unite us far outweighs the things that divide us.”

The retired neurosurgeon added that he “pray[s] that God will work in the lives of the American people to heal our land and bring us to a place of peace.”
