Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (CT-5) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s tweet regarding Senator Kirsten Gillibrand:

“This morning’s comments are beneath the dignity of the highest office in America,” Esty said. “The president should remove his tweets and apologize to Senator Gillibrand immediately. Our number one priority should be to do the work the American people elected us to do – to put politics aside and work together to grow our economy and create jobs. This sexist attack on Senator Gillibrand is a failure of leadership and demeaning and disrespectful to the American people – particularly American women. I earnestly hope it is never repeated.”
