Ben Carson told NBC's Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on Sunday, "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that."
To which Carly Fiorina responded, "I think that's wrong."
"I actually believe that people of faith make better leaders," she said. "Whether they are Christians, as I am, my faith has sustained me through some very bad times. I've battled cancer, I've lost a child, I've been tested. But whether it's a person of Christian faith or Jewish faith or Muslim faith or other faiths, I think faith gives us humility, and empathy and optimism. And I think those are important things."
Fallon clarified, "so you'd be fine with that?"
"Yes, I would be fine with that," she said to cheers from the audience.
