U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is not backing down after she called for President Donald Trump to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct.
Gillibrand reiterated her call for Trump to resign while making an appearance at Newburgh Free Academy on Friday. Gillibrand also said Congress should investigate allegations made by 13 women against Trump for allegedly groping and kissing them.
Last week, Trump tweeted, "Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck 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. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!"
Gillibrand previously called for Sen. Al Franken to resign after he was accused of groping women. Gillibrand has also said former President Bill Clinton should have resigned over his affair with a White House intern.
"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," Gillibrand responded on Twitter.
