Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina conducted a media call Monday morning after announcing she is running for president. In response to a question about what she would do on her first day in office if she were elected, Fiorina said that her first phone call would be to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“How we treat our friends is reassuring to our other friends,” said Fiorina. “This administration has made the world a more dangerous place by the way they have treated Israel.”

Fiorina then continued, saying that her second call would be to the Supreme Leader of Iran. Remarking that she was not sure he would take her call, she said that she would want to send a message that the United States would impose strict sanctions on them to force an end to their quest for nuclear weapons:

We are going to impose sanctions, specifically making it very difficult for them to move money throughout the global financial system, which we have a fair amount of influence over, unless and until they open themselves up to full and unfettered inspections, as they agreed to do, per the unanimously passed UN resolution, and which they have never done.

Fiorina’s third call would be a domestic one, to the head of the Democratic Party, “to say that we have work to do [and] I look forward to working with both [parties] to get that work done.”
