Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump had high praise for his former 2016 GOP rival Ben Carson on Friday, ahead of the retired neurosurgeon’s official endorsement of Mr. Trump in Florida.

Ben is a terrific guy, loved by everybody,” Mr. Trump said on “Fox and Friends.” “He was just really liked and respected by everybody, I think probably more so in terms of the like aspect of it … each of the competitors really liked him.”

“And I got a call from Ben and he said, you know, you’re doing something that’s amazing,” he said. “We call it the movement, and it is a movement, when you have 20- and 25,000 people every time you speak, or almost every time you speak. We have the biggest crowds by far, and he said this is amazing and I love what you’re doing, and I’d love to join and I’d love to endorse you.”

“And I said, Ben, this would be an honor,” Mr. Trump said.
