Dr. Ben Carson: Tuesday's Election Result Was a Renaissance of the American Manifest Destiny

Wednesday, the Independent Journal Review published an op-ed written by Dr. Ben Carson in which he gave his observations of the election of President-Elect Donald Trump and what it means for America.

In it, he discussed a "New American Manifest Destiny," saying a "renaissance" of American greatness had been triggered.

"America has always been a beacon for individuals who wanted to make something great of their lives and fortunes; for those who had seemingly tried all things everywhere else but found new hope, new inspiration here on our shores," he wrote. "It certainly began with a tiny ship crossing a deep blue sea and landing in Jamestown over 400 years ago."

Carson wrote that he's not sure Trump fully understands what he's tapped into in the course of the election, but that for next four years, he must "harness that sentiment" to advance his political agenda. But, he added, the "pursuit of American greatness" pre-exists Trump, and it will exist long after his tenure is over.

"The same can be said for the Republican Party," he added. "For those who swore they would do all they could to see that Trump lost, let me say the party is bigger than one person. It always has been. It must be."
