Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, whose physical appearance was once mocked by Donald Trump, has reached out to congratulate him on being elected to serve as the nation's 45th president.

In a message posted on her Facebook page Wednesday, Fiorina, who dropped out of the race for the GOP presidential nomination earlier this year, wrote:

"Congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence. The American people have spoken. Time for real change that unites us and carries our nation forward."

Fiorina's graceful words come just over a year after a frosty relationship developed between the two following Trump's comments about her face.

"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?" Trump said to Rolling Stone magazine.

"I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

Fiorina responded on Fox News that Trump's words "speak for themselves."

Then in March, Fiorina endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, saying she was "horrified" at the prospect of a Trump presidency.

"There are some people in our party saying Donald Trump isn't so bad … but he's a deal maker; he can make deals. The truth is Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin. They're not going to reform the system, they are the system," Fiorina said.

In September, she appeared to thaw toward Trump as she criticized his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in a tweet posted by the Washington State GOP: 

But in October, she went after Trump again, saying he should step down as GOP presidential nominee so that the Republican National Committee could replace him with his vice-presidential running mate Mike Pence.

Trump "does not represent me or my party," she said on her Facebook page.

"I understand the responsibility of Republicans to support their nominee. Our nominee has weighty responsibilities as well. Donald Trump has manifestly failed in these responsibilities," Fiorina added.
