Fiorina: ‘Irresponsible’ for Donald Trump to ‘Fan the Flames of Fear and Frustration’
DOOCY: "So you detailed parts of your plan. And we talked earlier about Donald Trump's temporary Muslim ban. You don't like that. And yet, Mrs. Fiorina when you look at the brand new FOX news poll taken down in South Carolina, half of it was taken before the plan that he announced, the other half after. Before the plan, 30 percent of the people said that they would support him. And then afterwards it spiked to 38 percent. And there's a Bloomberg poll that say two-thirds of primary voters like his ban. They like the idea."
HASSELBECK: "Are the American people getting it wrong?"
FIORINA: "Well, I think the American people are afraid. I understand that. And the American people are frustrated. I understand that, too. And so it is irresponsible of someone to play on that fear and frustration and not offer a plan. But instead just fan the flames of fear and frustration. We actually have to do something about this. When Donald Trump is asked, what are you going to do about ISIS, his answer is, 'Oh, you don't want to know what I'm going to do.' That's because he doesn't know what he's going to do. Fear and frustration are real. I understand them. But we have to solve the problem. And that takes leadership, and it takes practical solutions. Not simply playing on people's fears and frustrations."
DOOCY: "All right."
FIORINA: "Which are real."
DOOCY: "Joining us from Concord, New Hampshire this morning, Carly Fiorina. Thank you very much for being with us today."
