Top Republican donor and fundraiser Meg Whitman endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president on Tuesday, saying she cannot support a candidate who has "exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division."
Whitman, president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, said in a statement that Republican nominee Donald Trump's "demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character."
"Trump's reckless and uninformed positions on critical issues -- from immigration to our economy to foreign policy -- have made it abundantly clear that he lacks both the policy depth and sound judgment required as president," Whitman said.
She said national security would be in danger under a Trump presidency and she encouraged all Republicans to support Clinton in November.
Whitman ran unsuccessfully for California governor in 2010, spending $144 million of her own money in a 13 percentage point loss to Democrat Jerry Brown.
