Republican Hewlett Packard CEO Will Vote for Clinton

Whitman said 'Donald Trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character'

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, CNBC reported.

Whitman said in a LinkedIn post on Tuesday night that, "Donald Trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character."

"As a proud Republican, casting my vote for president has usually been a simple matter," Whitman wrote. "This year is different. 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."
