Carly Fiorina: Unlike Hillary Clinton, ‘I Have Actually Accomplished Something’
Speaking at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday, former Hewlett-Packard CEO and possible GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina went after Hillary Clinton for touting her travel record as Secretary of State.
“Like Hillary Clinton, I too have travelled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe,” she said. “But unlike her, I have actually accomplished something. Mrs. Clinton, flying is an activity, not an accomplishment.”
She also criticized Clinton’s attempts at a diplomatic “reset” with Russia: “I have met Vladimir Putin and know that it will take more to halt his ambitions than a gimmicky red reset button.”
She also touted her international business record, saying it gives her more foreign policy experience than Clinton.
In addition, Fiorina invoked the Benghazi scandal: “Unlike Hillary Clinton, I know what difference it makes that our ambassador to Libya and three other brave Americans were killed in a deliberate terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 and that the response of our nation must be more forceful than the arrest of a single individual a year later.”
Last week, following President Barack Obama‘s State of the Union, Fiorina went after White House adviser Valerie Jarrett on equal pay.
