Trump Embroiled with Sexual Harassment Battle With Gillibrand

Trump, Gillibrand

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has long been a proponent of outing sexual harassers in various circles. She’s tackled the issue in the military, Congress more recently, and now President Trump himself.

How it Started

Trump is no stranger to controversy. It seems that he welcomes it. This all started when Senator Gillibrand called on President Trump to resign over accusations of sexual harassment from when he was a business icon in New York City. Several women have come forward yet again, given the climate, to detail how Donald Trump had touched and groped them inappropriately over the years.

Trump took to Twitter, as he does, to defend himself. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” he Tweeted.

Gillibrand Responds

Furthermore, Senator Gillibrand responded on Twitter herself. “You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office.”
