Huffington Post Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington coined the term "Trexit" on Monday when she urged supporters of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump to vote for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"Now we need 'Trexit'… ending our potential union with Donald Trump before it's too late," Huffington said during an interview on MSNBC.
The term refers to British voters last week deciding in the so-called Brexit referendum that the United Kingdom should leave the European Union.
"But the problem as we've seen with Brexit is that actually not checking out the unintended consequences of your decision is very problematic," Huffington said.
"I would love to have so many Republicans 'Trexiting' like George Will, like former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, like Brent Scowcroft following in the footsteps of Sen. Ben Sasse," Huffington continued. "You don't have to like Hillary Clinton to vote for Hillary Clinton. This is your only chance to stop Donald Trump.”

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
