Gillibrand Questions Existence of Robust Economy


Over the course of the 2020 presidential election, Kirsten Gillibrand has struggled. The Gillibrand campaign still remains in the single-digit margin in the polls and has yet to gain momentum which rivals the campaigns of Warren, Sanders, or even Harris. In between the various primary debates, Gillibrand put out various ads, asking Americans to chip in to “get [her] to the debates.”

Earlier today, Gillibrand appeared on air for an interview with ABC This Week. During her remarks, Gillibrand questioned the notion of a robust economy under the Trump administration. According to Gillibrand, the economy is not doing very well for working families in America.

Prior to Gillibrand’s interview, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro also appeared on air. Navarro lauded the “rosy economic outlook” which has ensued since Trump’s time in office; later, Gillibrand faced questions about her perception of the economy. The 2020 hopeful denounced Navarro’s assertions, claiming that they don’t represent the experiences of Americans across the country.
