Nooyi joked “Do you have a box of tissues here?”, when asked how she felt after the results.

Nooyi said  while speaking at the New York Times Dealbook Conference a day after the election results, “I had to answer a lot of questions from my daughters, from our employees. They were all in mourning. Our employees were all crying. The question that they are asking, especially those who are not white ‘Are we safe’, women are asking ‘Are we safe’, LGBT people are asking ‘Are we safe’,” Nooyi said .

Regarding the Trump's comment about women, Nooyi said, “Forget about the Pepsi brand. How dare you talk about women that way.”
