Donald Trump must be stopped. That’s the message being delivered by HP CEO Meg Whitman.
In a public address on CNBC Whitman said Trump is a “dishonest demagogue” that will “sink this country into a recession.”
“I won’t be voting for Donald Trump,” Whitman said Friday. “Look at the comments he’s made about women, about Muslims, about reporters, it’s just repugnant.”
Whitman is just one of a growing list of high profile Republicans who have promised to vote against Donald Trump.
“My belief is if the American people could really understand his record, understand who he is, understand his business track record, which is not strong, we would not nominate Donald Trump,” Whitman said.
Last weekend, Whitman said Trump was unfit to be president and then she attacked Gov. Chris Christie for endorsing him.
“Is this the kind of temperament we want in a leader?” Whitman said.
She called his economic plans “incredibly dangerous.”
Whitman knows a thing or two about running a business. She was the CEO at eBay for a decade and she is currently one of the most powerful people in tech thanks to her CEO role at HP.
“His plan to put on a 35% tariff on goods imported would sink this company into a recession. It would penalize global companies that are trying to be competitive globally,” said Whitman.
Donald Trump has continued to push back against his Republican opponents. “I’ll just address it quickly because it’s irrelevant. Mitt is a failed candidate. He failed horribly,” Trump said at a rally in Portland, Maine on Thursday, the same day Mitt Romney attacked his political policy ideas.
