Fiorina: I Support Trump’s Impeachment,But I May Vote For Him In 2020 Anyways
Former Republican presidential candidate and disgraced tech executive Carly Fiorina believes it is “vital” that President Donald Trump be impeached, but did not rule out voting for him in 2020, according to CNN.
The former Hewlett-Packard CEO told CNN on “Boss FIles with Poppy Harlow” that the President’s conduct is not only impeachable, but also “destructive to the republic.”
“I think it is vital that he be impeached,” Fiorina said. When asked whether Trump should be removed from office, she said, “this close to an election, I don’t know.”
Fiorina also did not rule out voting for him again in 2020: “It depends who the Democrats put up.”
“Some of this conduct, like publicly berating a decorated war veteran who shows up in response to a lawfully issued subpoena of Congress, I think that conduct is not just unbecoming, I think it’s destructive to our republic,” she said, condemning Trump’s attacks on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council’s top Ukraine expert who testified before House impeachment investigators.
Fiorina told Harlow that Trump has “undoubtedly done some of the right things,” and praised him for strengthening the economy, but said, “I do think that the systematic tearing down of people, institutions, political opponents, will have long-lasting damage if it goes on for much longer.”
Harlow asked Fiorina why there are so few Republican women in Congress, to which she replied that the GOP has sent a message to women in the U.S. that they don’t value or respect them.
“I think there is a reason why women, people of color, young people, don’t feel affinity for the Republican Party. It’s because the brand, the way business has been conducted, sends a message: we don’t value you, and we don’t respect you,” she said.
