"It's only in this country where you can go from being a secretary to the chief executive of the largest technology company in the world and then run for president of the United States."

When Carly Fiorina stopped by Monday's Tonight Show, she noted of Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin, "The two of them have a lot in common, actually," before explaining what she'd do if she was in office. "Putin needs to see that he faces strength and resolve and leadership from the United States of America. He would see that from me; he's not seeing that from this administration."

The Republican presidential candidate also said that she's coming into the race mostly as an unknown. She wants America to know, "When I was a little girl, my mother said, 'What you are is God's gift to you; what you make of yourself is your gift to God.' I have learned in my life that everyone has God-given gifts. ... I want to make sure that every American, regardless of who they are, what they look like, how they start or what their circumstances [are], has the opportunity to fulfill their potential and find and use their God-given gifts. That isn't true in America today."

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO also outlined her humble beginnings as a secretary for a small real estate firm. "It's only in this country where you can go from being a secretary to the chief executive of the largest technology company in the world and then run for president of the United States."
