CHRIS WALLACE, "FOX NEWS SUNDAY" HOST: This is also one of the first times, one of the few times that Donald Trump has trailed in the polls. Here was his reaction.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
DONALD TRUMP, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: We have a breaking story: Donald Trump has fallen to second place behind Ben Carson. We informed Ben, but he was sleeping.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
WALLACE: Now, he went after you as even more low energy than Jeb Bush. He said you're very weak on immigration. He even questioned your faith as a Seventh Day Adventist.
Dr. Carson, what do you make of that?
DR. BEN CARSON, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Well, it's kind of interesting because the conflict that we had a couple of months ago is he thought I was questioning his faith and he went ballistic on that. So, it seems a little interesting that he would now be doing that.
You know, I really refuse to really get into the mud pit. You know, Hillary actually was right when she said, you know, that the Republicans are there trying to destroy each other. I really think that was a huge mistake in the last cycle, and I’m certainly not going to get into that no matter what anybody says.
WALLACE: Do you think it shows something about Trump? Says something about his character?
CARSON: Well, he is who he is. I don't think that's going to change. And I am who I am. That's not going to change either.
So, you know, neither one of us probably is going to be somebody who is going to be managed by handlers, because that's not who we are. And the way I kind of look at it, if people resonate what I’m talking about, they will know it's the truth and what I truly believe. And if they like that, and it works with them and they feel I’m the good representative for them, that's great. I would love to have their vote.
And if they don't want me, that's fine, too. Because I would never lie just to get an office. I wouldn't be happy and the people wouldn't be happy.
