“Trump supported partial-birth abortion, he has never spoken about religious liberty and he agrees with the Democrats on health care more than he agrees with Republicans.” Fiorina told the FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo.

Fiorina discussed efforts to stop a Republican nomination of Trump.

“He [Donald Trump] doesn’t represent me, and he doesn’t represent my party.  And I will spend all of my energy making sure that he is not our nominee.”

Fiorina then weighed in on why Trump is actually a part of the establishment.

“I think Trump is a big act, I think he always has been.  And I think for example – here is the biggest act of all – Donald Trump says he is going to challenge the system; Donald Trump IS the system. Donald Trump has taken advantage of the system his entire life,“ said Fiorina.

Fiorina then gave an example and pointed to Trump’s similarities to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

“He is the other side of the coin to Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton has made her millions selling access and influence from the inside and Donald Trump has made his billions buying people like Hillary Clinton off. He is the system, he will not challenge it.

She argued that Trump’s momentum will not last.

“The more people learn about Donald Trump the less he wins, that’s a fact.  So in Arizona for example, he won, but he won at the beginning of that long early voting period, he didn’t win at the end.  And so, what I think what you are starting to see now is Donald Trump has in fact begun to peak.” Said Fiorina.
