Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said he will leave office at the end of President Donald Trump's first term, saying he could have a greater impact in the private sector.

“I will certainly finish out this term,” Carson told Newsmax TV's John Gizzi in an interview on Monday night.

Pressed on whether he would be interested in serving during a second Trump term, Carson responded, “I would be interested in returning to the private sector, because I think you have just as much influence — maybe more — there.”

He released a statement late Monday in response to questions about his comments, saying he “always stand[s] ready to serve this great President and the United States of America.”
