Ben Carson Announces Africa Trip

Ben Carson Announces Africa Trip

Monday, 07 December 2015 08:45 PM EST

Ben Carson's campaign says the Republican presidential candidate will travel to Africa later this month.

A statement from the campaign says Carson will visit three African nations on a trip slated to begin Dec. 27. No word on which countries Carson will visit or how long the trip will last.

Carson is the only African-American among the major Democratic and Republican presidential hopefuls. He has said previously that he traced his ancestry back to African slaves brought to the United States by force.

In the campaign, the retired neurosurgeon has tried to answer concerns about his lack of foreign policy experience.

The Africa trip would be Carson's second foreign venture in recent months. In late November, he traveled to the Middle East, visiting Syrian refugee camps in Jordan.
