Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is responding to a Twitter attack by President Donald Trump over her call for him to resign over past allegations of sexual misconduct.

The New York Democrat tweeted: 

Gillibrand on Monday had called for Trump to resign, after several women called new attention to past allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump.

On Twitter Tuesday, Trump lashed out at Gillibrand, calling the New York Democrat "lightweight" and "a total flunky for Chuck Schumer," the Senate Democratic leader.

Trump says Gillibrand "would come to my office "begging" for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them)."

Gillibrand told CNN on Monday that the allegations of sexual misconduct are credible and numerous and that Trump should resign.

Trump sailed past a raft of allegations of sexual misconduct in last year's presidential election, but the national #MeToo spotlight is turning back to the president and his past conduct.
