Dear Commons Community,
As reported by various media, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) doesn’t mince words on the subject of whether President Donald Trump has kept his promises to the American people. She raised the issue during a speech at New York University’s Personal Democracy Forum this morning commenting:
“Even though we as Democrats are on the right side of almost all issues, many hardworking families haven’t felt that we’ve been fighting for them,” she said. “Fundamentally, if we are not helping people, we should go the fuck home.”
The New York senator had been considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate. However, she announced in May that she’s ruled out a run, saying she is “dedicated to serving our state as our senator, and I’m running for reelection so I can continue to be their senator.”
She is my kind of New Yorker! Run Kirsten Run!
