Major GOP Donor Will Back Clinton Over Trump

Major Republican donor Meg Whitman said on Tuesday that she plans to support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the election.

"Donald Trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character," Whitman, president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, said in a statement. "America needs the kind of stable and aspirational leadership Secretary Clinton can provide."

She also plans to make a “substantial” financial contribution to Clinton’s campaign, telling The New York Times, “I will vote for Hillary, I will talk to my Republican friends about helping her, and I will donate to her campaign and try to raise money for her.”

Whitman, who ran for governor of California in 2010, said she doesn't agree with Clinton on many issues, but noted that the Democratic nominee would "be a much better president than Donald Trump."

An aide to Whitman said the billionaire businesswoman would personally give Clinton's campaign at least an amount in the "mid-six figures."

In the interview, Whitman also slammed Trump and said the Republicans need to "put country first before party," according to The New York Times.

She called Trump "a dishonest demagogue" and said he could take the country "on a very dangerous journey." She also said he has "undermined the character of the nation."

She said she stands by her former comments, in which she compared Trump to Hitler and Mussolini. She made the remarks during a private gathering of Republican donors earlier this year.

“Time and again history has shown that when demagogues have gotten power or come close to getting power, it usually does not end well,” Whitman said.

At the end of her statement Whitman said other Republicans ought to do the same:  "I urge all Republicans to reject Donald Trump this November."
