Transcript for Carly Fiorina Announces 2016 Presidential Campaign Live on 'GMA'
announcement in I'm here with Carly fiorina, the former tech CEO republican party leader has been traveling the country exploring a run for president tweeted out last night she's coming on "Gma" to make some big news so welcome to "Gma." Let's get right to it. Are you running for president why are you the best person for the job. Yes, I am running for president. I think I'm the best person for the job because I understand how the economy actually works. I understand the world. Who's in it. How the world works and understand bureaucracies. That's what our federal government has become, a giant bloated unaccountable corrupt bureaucracy. I understand technology which is a tool both to reimage government and to re-engage citizens in the process of government. And I understand executive decision-making which is making a tough call in a tough time with high stakes for which you're prepared to be held accountable. I don't think you read about that. You learn it by doing it. You laid out owl your experience. Almost every single president has held elected office and how do you convince the voters you have the relevant experience. What you said is true over the last 50 or 60 years but it isn't how our nation started. It was intended to be a citizen government and come to this place in our nation's history where we think we need a professional political class. I don't believe that. As I've been out there across the country people don't believe that either. They're kind of tired of the political class. And ey believe that we need to return to a citizen government. This is a pivotal point for our nation so I think it's totally reasonable to look outside the political class that's been in Washington for a really long time. You know, as you've been traveling around the country you've had tough things to say about Hillary Clinton, not trustworthy, flawed character. Doesn't know what leadership means but back in 2008 you called her a focused Intel jeps and powerful leader. What changed? She is focused. She is empathetic to a degree and highly intelligent, hard working, dedicated her life to public service. All of those things are admirable so I have a lot of admiration for Hillary Clinton but she clearly is not trustworthy, has not been transparent about a whole set of things that matter. She wasn't trans parent about benghazi, in fact, just the option, peddled fiction about it and hasn't Ben transparent about her server and e-mails and now we see all these foreign government donations to the Clinton global initiative at a time when she was secretary of state and at a time when she said she would disclose those donation, all of those gets to trustworthiness. Sounds like you're ready to take her on. Just announced you're running. You'll come back later to talk to robin about your brand-new book, "Rising to the challenge."
