Change of Heart: Fiorina Defends Trump

Former HP CEO and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina was one of the more outspoken against Mr. Trump during the cycle. However, it seems that she has moved on and even more, she has come out publicly to defend the president-elect and his Cabinet selections.

The Washington Examiner quotes, ““I understand that Cory Booker doesn’t agree with Jeff Sessions. That’s his right, but it’s a very different thing for Cory Booker to say he’s unqualified. He’s clearly qualified, he’s overseen the Judiciary Committee,” Fiorina told moderator Van Jones in a CNN town hall on Wednesday evening when asked about the attorney general nominee.”

Even though Fiorina and Trump went back and forth, insulting each other on the debate stage, they left that in the past and are focusing on the future of our country.

Fiorina also added, ““Well, I have been clear when I felt his behavior was hurtful and objectionable, and I’ve been public about that,” Fiorina said. “But I also look at a man who obviously has extremely, highly qualified women in his Cabinet, extremely highly qualified women in his business. And so this appears to me, to be a man who recognizes talent, no matter what shape or size it comes in. And I think that’s important.”

She added that Trump will need to be held accountable, but has earned the country’s support and Americans of all stripes ought to “give him a shot.””
