Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina appeared on Fox News on Wednesday where she publicly announced that she was voting for Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the upcoming election.
During a Fox News interview, Fiorina said that she is one of many women in the Republican Party who are backing Biden.
“In my view, President Trump has failed in his leadership,” Fiorina told Fox News host Sandra Smith. “I think Donald Trump has a spotty record of speaking the truth about this virus and acting on the truth.”
“As citizens, we do not pledge allegiance to a party,” she added. “We do not pledge allegiance to a person, even the president. We pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and we are faithful to the Constitution.”
“I’m not a Democrat,” Fiorina said. “But presidential elections are a binary choice between two people. Donald Trump and Joe Biden, in this case. And in this case, I believe Joe Biden through his lifetime has demonstrated the ability to collaborate… He’s demonstrated that he is both humble and empathetic, characteristics that are critical to leadership, particularly leaders who know their job is to serve others.”
Fiorina’s endorsement of Biden seemed to strike a nerve in Trump fans who took to Twitter to express their anger. Their remarks were then mocked by supporters of Biden.
Just reporting the truth as it happens, I guess…
I know Trump supporters are unaccustomed to truth, so hope that was helpful….

Carly Fiorina is a huge disappointment. Her views are biased because of her insecurities. She made statement “women are problem solvers”then she says you have to collaborate with others to lead well, and then bam she says Biden is a better choice because he is a leader.?😳
