Carly Fiorina: ‘It’s Not Clear to Me That Donald Trump Is a Republican’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Republican presidential candidate and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said it is not clear whether or not fellow candidate Donald Trump is a Republican.

Fiorina said, “I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about, or focusing on what Donald Trump is saying. When his insults are below the belt to someone, then I will make a comment, just as I did when President Obama called anyone who disagreed with his Iranian deal equivalent to the hard-liners chanting ‘Death to America.’ I just think insults are not helpful to the political process. We’ve got a lot of serious issues here. But most of the time, I spend my time answering voters’ questions, and questions from the media.”

She added, “Well, you know, it’s not clear to me that Donald Trump is a Republican, first of all, based upon his willingness to run a third-party bid, and some of the positions that he’s taken. But I think it’s really important, as I go out there and talk, what I hear, what I see, are both men and women, who are sick of the professional political class. They’re sick of the festering problems in Washington, DC. They agree, that it’s ridiculous in the smartest and the richest country in the world, that we can’t get basic things done like serve our veterans, secure our borders, and hold government accountable for being competent.”
