Smithsonian MuseumDr. Ben Carson has not made many public appearances since his Senate Confirmation Hearing in January to become the next Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), but today he joined President Donald Trump in a tour of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture, the newest addition to the Smithsonian Institution.
 
The President and the HUD Secretary-Designate paused at a museum exhibit that highlighted Dr. Carson’s career as a neurosurgeon. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer shared a photograph on Twitter, citing the presence of Dr. Carson’s wife and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) with the presidential party. The president stated that he was “proud of Ben” after viewing the exhibit.
 
Dr. Carson’s nomination has yet to be ratified by a full Senate vote. Congress is on recess this week and a vote on this nomination has yet to be publicly announced.
