Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson believes that liberals are trying to to “destroy this nation” by creating a rhetoric of divisiveness.

At a campaign event on the steps of the Arkansas Capitol in Little Rock, Carson pointed out instances where Democratic leaders were “always trying to stir up trouble” by driving “wedges” between people.

“They tell you that there’s a war on women,” he said. “There is no war on women. There may be a war on what’s inside of women, but there is no war on women in this country.”

He argued that Americans should instead come together and realize that “we are all in the same boat” rather than focusing on racism and sexism.

“If I was trying to destroy this nation and I was in charge, let me tell you what I would do. I would drive wedges between the people. I would have a war on women and race wars and income wars and age wars and religious wars,” Carson said.

“I would be inviting people in here from other countries, I would be putting them on benefits, I’d be giving them free phones. I would be trying to get people involved in every social program that I possibly could so that I could destabilize the financial structure of the country. I would be trying to weaken the military and demoralize the military while our enemies were growing stronger and strong all over the world.”
