Former Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina appeared as a guest in an episode of Politico’s “Women Rule” podcast released Wednesday in which she contended that President Trump’s tweets are “insulting” and “distracting.”
“I don’t think he will stop tweeting, unfortunately,” Fiorina said. “But I think it’s very destructive.”
When asked about the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, Fiorina said we “need to get to the bottom of this.”
“We need to understand what actually happened,” she said. “And whatever actually happened, the American people need to believe that we’ve gotten to the bottom of it.”
Trump often takes to Twitter to make announcements and criticize the media and “fake news.”
On Tuesday, the president defended his use of Twitter, tweeting that “The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media. They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out.”
According to a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll, the majority of voters thinks Trump tweets too much.
During the 2016 Republican presidential primary, Trump came under fire for criticizing Fiorina’s face in an interview with a magazine.
“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?” Trump was quoted as saying.
Fiorina responded at a debate by noting, “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.”
In a separate speech, she said, “This is the face of a 61-year-old woman. I am proud of every year and every wrinkle.”
