Major longtime Republican donor, Meg Whitman, who ranked No. 9 in the recent Forbes’ List of The World’s Most Powerful Women, reportedly compared Donald Trump to fascist dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini in a closed-door summit on Friday, a meeting coordinated by 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, who is heavily in the #NeverTrump camp.
Furthermore, Whitman told those in attendance that it is not out of the question for her to support Hillary Clinton, given how deplorable Donald Trump has acted.
Fellow GOP donor John Chachas told ABC News that “She posed the question, ‘Is it not reasonable to support Hillary Clinton?’ given all the awful things Trump has said.”
For his part, Donald Trump appears to at least be a fan of Mussolini, retweeting a quote from the Italian dictator on February 28, of this year:

Trump later explained the retweet of fascist Mussolini as “a very good quote.”
Whitman, the current president and CEO of Hewlett Packard, was a 2010 California gubernatorial candidate, losing to current Democrat Governor Jerry Brown. Whitman led eBay from 1998 to 2008.
