Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina told viewers Thursday on Special Report that when it comes to her record as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, “I led HP through a very difficult time.”
“In a difficult time, sometimes difficult decisions are necessary to compete,” Fiorina added. She cited positive statistics that proved the company’s success during that time including that it doubled its size.
Fiorina also reflected on the current economy and job market challenges.
“I think what we have to realize in the 21st century is that we have to compete for every job and honestly we're shooting ourselves in the foot all the time,” she commented. “The complexity of our tax code and our regulatory structure is now destroying more businesses than we are creating in this country, which means we're destroying jobs.”
