Amid sexual misconduct allegations, Sen. Hirono calls for Trump's resignation

Amid sexual misconduct allegations, Sen. Hirono calls for Trump's resignation

That made Gillibrand the fifth senator (a sixth has since added her name) to call for Trump to step down over allegations of sexual misconduct, allegations that were aired before the 2016 election and have been revived in recent days as part of a larger national conversation about men behaving badly and the consequences that should be imposed on them.

Gillibrand told CNN Monday that she believed the allegations raised against Trump are credible and should be investigated.

Trump lambasted Gillibrand on Twitter on Tuesday, writing, "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. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!" he tweeted before the sun rose over Washington, D.C.

Trump was roundly criticized Tuesday after he called Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as a "sexist attack", and called for him to remove the tweet and apologize.

According to Open Secrets, Trump has given Gillibrand $5,850 in campaign contributions. Her comments came after three women held a press conference to reiterate allegations that Trump sexually assaulted them. "This is simply talking about a system that we have which is broken", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday.

However, with Trump getting in such fights, that lends "credence and credibility to people like Gillibrand", said King, and he thinks Trump, as president, should stay above that. "Hi, this is President Donald Trump and I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore", the recording began. "We're private citizens and for us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and how he views women, and for them to say, 'Eh, we don't care, ' it hurt". "It's not going to silence the women who have stood up against him directly, and it's not going to silence the millions of women who been speaking out every day since his inauguration about things they disagree with". You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around you even worse.

ABC News reached out to the White House for clarification about the president's remarks but had not received a response at the time of publication.

He also rejected the more than a dozen accusations against him as "fake news" fabricated by the Democratic Party. Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of sexual relationships with underage girls back when he was a district attorney in his 30s, but the Trump-backed Republican has refused to drop out of the race.

Trump's White House has dismissed the revival of accusations about his alleged inappropriate behavior over the decades.
