The retired neurosurgeon and Trump adviser mentioned Iraq, North Korea and the South China Sea as situations Trump would be preoccupied handling.
 
"He's not gonna have time, you know, to be tweeting about that," Carson said.

Carson, who ended his own presidential bid earlier this year, was asked whether Trump as president would react differently to major incidents — such as the EgyptAir jetliner that went missing on Thursday — than he does currently.
 
Trump quickly linked the disappearance of the plane flying from Paris to Cairo to terrorism in a tweet early Thursday and later claimed that a bomb brought down the plane. Officials said there was not yet an indication of a blast.
 
Clinton was more cautious, saying it did "appear that it was an act of terrorism" in describing the disappearing passenger jet while pointing to the coming investigation into its disappearance.
 
"It's clear that he's expressing his opinion," Carson said of Trump. "Everybody forms opinions about what's going on. I suspect that when all the dust has settled there will be some mischief implicated in this crash.
 
"I would expect him obviously to entertain all of the different possibilities and more than likely as president he's going to have a spokesperson and they're going to be issuing statements and they're going to be talking about all the different possibilities."
