Trump on Carly Fiorina: "If You Listen To Her For More Than Five Minutes Straight, You Get A Headache"

|

In an appearance on ABC's This Week, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took a shot at his primary rival Carly Fiorina, who received a big boost in the latest national GOP poll.

"I mean she's been terrible. And, you know, she's got a good pitter patter, but if you listen to her for more than five minutes straight, you get a headache."

Trump referenced Fiorina's business acumen and unsuccessful tenures at tech companies.

"She did a terrible job at Hewlett Packard," Trump told host George Stephanopoulos. "She did a terrible job at Lucent. I mean those companies are just a disaster and she destroyed Hewlett Packard. And still, the other day, on the front page of "The Wall Street Journal," 25,000 additional people were let go and that was because of the remnants of what she did."

"The Compaq computer deal was one of the worst deals made in business history," Trump said. "And she destroyed the company that she was at before then."

STEPHANOPOULOS: I still haven't heard exactly what you're going to do, but I want to move on to some more politics.

Carly Fiorina surging in this CNN poll, up to 15 percent. You had some exchanges with her the other night. Did you underestimate her?

TRUMP: No, look, she did a terrible job at Hewlett Packard. She did a terrible job at Lucent. I mean those companies are just a disaster and she destroyed Hewlett Packard. And still, the other day, on the front page of "The Wall Street Journal," 25,000 additional people were let go and that was because of the remnants of what she did.

The Compaq computer deal was one of the worst deals made in business history. And she destroyed the company that she was at before then.

I mean she's been terrible. And, you know, she's got a good pitter patter, but if you listen to her for more than five minutes straight, you get a headache.

So I -- I am not concerned with Carly. I hope she does well. I'd like to see her do well. I think she's a nice woman, although I don't know her. But frankly, you know, but I don't -- I didn't see the poll. I know -- I think I'm still way in first place.
