Reasoning that Trump would ‘endanger our national security’, Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman, who is also a prominent Republican fundraiser, has just said she will vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Billionnaire Whitman has called trump a “demagogue” who is unfit for the presidency.
In a statement released this week, Whitman commented, “As a proud Republican, casting my vote for president has usually been a simple matter. This year is different.”
“To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division. Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character.”
She went on to say, “Trump’s reckless and uninformed positions on critical issues — from immigration to our economy to foreign policy — have made it abundantly clear that he lacks both the policy depth and sound judgment required as president.”
“Trump’s unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more.”
As for why she has decided on Clinton, she remarked, “In a tumultuous world, America needs the kind of stable and aspirational leadership Secretary Clinton can provide. I urge all Republicans to reject Donald Trump this November.”
