SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — 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.”

The Hewlett-Packard executive said in a statement that Republican nominee Donald Trump’s “demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character.”

“Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character,” Whitman said in a statement released Tuesday night. “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.”

She said national security would be in danger under a Trump presidency and she encouraged all Republicans to support Clinton in November.

The former eBay CEO ran unsuccessfully for California governor in 2010, spending $144 million of her own money in a $178 million loss against Democrat Jerry Brown.

Whitman was the national finance co-chair of New Jersey candidate Gov. Chris Christie’s presidential campaign before he dropped out and endorsed Trump. At the time, she called Christie’s move “an astonishing display of political opportunism.”

In June, Whitman had compared Trump at a closed-door summit to Mussolini and Hitler and warned Republicans that compromising on some conservative principles to support Trump now might lead to bigger compromises in future years.
