Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman has come out in support of Hillary Clinton, saying that even as a Republican she could not support "demagogue" Donald Trump.
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." Whitman, a billionaire who waged an unsuccessful gubernatorial campaign in California in 2010, said that the GOP presidential nominee's "reckless and uninformed positions on critical issues - from immigration to our economy to foreign policy - have made it abundantly clear that he lack both the policy depth and sound judgment required as president." "Therefore, I have decided to support Hillary Rodham Clinton," she wrote, adding that it was clear that the Democratic nominee's temperament, experience and commitment to U.S.
Whitman had previously made clear she was concerned by Trump's bid for the White House, telling CNBC in May that she believed the real estate mogul's trade policies would hurt the U.S.
Bush also critiqued the policies of "isolationism, nativism and protectionism" at an event on Tuesday, although he didn't mention Trump by name, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The latest NBC News/Survey Monkey Tracking Poll showed that Clinton made gains in every census region across the U.S.
