Ben Carson: Bringing in Syrian refugees ‘exposes us to danger’

05:11

Speaking with TODAY from West Palm Beach, Florida, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson brushes off his faltering polls, saying “it’s a marathon, not a sprint” and he still has “plenty of time” to make his case to voters. He tells Matt Lauer that the American system was made for “the citizen statesman, not the career politician” and questioned whether Washington insiders can solve the nation’s problems. Regarding Syrian refugees, he says that bringing in tens of thousands of refugees “does not solve the problem, and it exposes us to danger.”
