In recent days, several women band together to accuse President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. This comes shortly after dozens of names in Hollywood and politics have also been accused of sexual misconduct, including producer Harvey Weinstein and Republican nominee for Alabama Senate Roy Moore.

More than 50 Democratic lawmakers are proposing an investigation be done on the President in relation to these allegations. Others have gone as far as calling on Trump to resign immediately.

Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York was one of many who called for the President’s resignation. Gillibrand appeared in an interview with CNN, which was aired on Monday evening.

When asked, “Should the White House be worried?” over the accusations, Gillibrand replied, “Well, President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous, I've heard these women’s testimony and many of them are heartbreaking. President Trump should resign his position.”

She continued, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

On Tuesday morning, Trump responded to Gillibrand via Twitter. In his statement, he denied the allegations and insisted that after failing to prove any Trump-Russia collusion, liberals have resulted to their plan B.

In a later post, Trump called out Gillibrand for her remarks, calling her “disloyal.”
