Carly Fiorina declared on Sunday that Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton's strategy was to "lie as long as you get away with it," which is also one of the top complaints about Fiorina's presidential campaign.

Speaking to Fox News host Chris Wallace, Fiorina asserted that Clinton would rather run against Donald Trump.

"Because she can beat Donald Trump," Fiorina said. "And she doesn't want to run against me because I can beat her because I will fight her -- force her to fight on ground that she will lose on."

"I will force her to fight on the ground of her lies and lack of trustworthiness," she continued. "Whether that's about emails and servers or Benghazi."

Fiorina pledged to "reveal to the American people over and over and over again the Clinton way to get elected: Lie as long as you can get away with it."

"I will force her to run on accountability for the Clinton way."

Throughout Fiorina's campaign, she has been repeatedly pilloried by fact checkers for what the media has bluntly called "lies" about Planned Parenthood's mistreatment of fetuses and the number of generals who quit under President Barack Obama.
