Trump just picked on the wrong woman

This morning, in a wildly offensive and sexually-charged broadside on Twitter, Donald Trump went after Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

Dear MoveOn member,

This morning, in a wildly offensive and sexually-charged broadside on Twitter, Donald Trump went after Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. He wrote that she came to his office in the past, "begging" for campaign contributions and "would do anything" for them.1

Trump attacked Sen. Gillibrand because yesterday she became the fifth senator—and the first woman senator—to demand that he resign because of the numerous allegations of sexual harassment and assault against him.

Trump had no comment when male senators called on him to resign.2

We need to show Sen. Gillibrand—and women everywhere—that we have their backs when they are sexually harassed and when they speak out about sexual harassment and assault. We need to show harassers, abusers, and their protectors that attempts to silence women will backfire tenfold.

Will you donate $3 to Kirsten Gillibrand's re-election campaign—and we'll make sure that every political reporter in Washington, D.C., knows just how much money Trump's outrageous tweet raised for a courageous, progressive woman who's calling out the most powerful man in the world for sexual harassment and assault.

Click here to donate now. 100% of your donation will go to Sen. Gillibrand's re-election campaign, and we will report results to the press.

We have reached a watershed moment in our country's history, with powerful men finally starting to be held to account for sexual assault and harassment. And Sen. Gillibrand is leading the way to make sure that Trump is held accountable for his despicable actions, too.

We can't let Trump undermine the momentum of the #MeToo movement. He will not intimidate women. He will not silence women. We will stand together to end the epidemic of sexual harassment and assault in our country.

Please, at this critical moment, let’s come together. Click here now to chip in $3, or whatever you can afford, to Kirsten Gillibrand's re-election campaign.

Thanks for all you do.
