Trump Attacks Kirsten Gillibrand, Blames Democrats For ‘Fabricated Stories’ Of Sexual Assault

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump on Tuesday assailed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who demanded he resign after several women renewed claims of sexual misconduct, and claimed Democrats “fabricated” the accusations.

Trump, in an early morning tweet the day after four of his accusers called on Congress to investigate him, blamed Democrats for the “false accusations” involving “women who I don’t know and/or have never met.”

In a second tweet, Trump attacked Gillibrand as “lightweight” and “a total flunky” for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). He claimed she “begged” him for campaign donations in the past and “would do anything for them.”

Gillibrand responded by pointing out that “millions of women” protested Trump’s inauguration and have been stirred into activism since his election.

More than a dozen women have accused Trump of sexual harassment or assault. Among them are a former business partner, contestants on his reality television show “The Apprentice,” and a People magazine reporter who interviewed him and his wife, Melania, in 2005.

Some of Trump’s accusers have revived their stories amid the wave of misconduct claims against prominent men in politics, media and entertainment, as well as Trump’s support for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faces allegations that he sexually assaulted and preyed on teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

Four of Trump’s accusers this week asked Congress to hold him accountable for his actions.
