After Trump’s ‘Sexist’ Twitter Attack, Sen. Gillibrand Fires Back: ‘You Cannot Silence Me’




Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) fired back at President Trump after he attacked her on Twitter, tweeting Tuesday that she, as well as other women, will not be silenced.

“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 wrote on Twitter.

In a tweet on Tuesday morning, which has been described by many as a form of sexual harassment, Trump said that Gillibrand had begged him for campaign donations in the past and added that she “would do anything for them.”

Gillibrand later called Trump’s attack a “sexist smear attempting to silence my voice” and said she “will not be silenced on this issue; neither will the women who stood up to the president yesterday.”




Sen. Elizabeth Warren fired back at the president’s attack, tweeting: “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.”

On Monday, Gillibrand had called on Trump to resign in light of the several women who have accused him of sexual assault, or otherwise misconduct.

“President Trump should resign,” Gillibrand said. “These allegations are credible; they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.”
