Republican presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson clarified comments he made about drone use on “State of the Union” Sunday.

Reports stated that Carson had said earlier this week that he was open to the idea of using drone strikes to secure the United States border with Mexico.

But he wouldn’t use those drones to kill people, he said on Sunday.

“There are caves that they utilize. Those caves can be eliminated. There are a number of possibilities,” Carson said on the program. “I’m not talking about killing people.”
