Congresswoman Katherine Clark joined Senator Elizabeth Warren and others in her party condemning President Donald Trump’s Twitter attack on New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

“Women know Trump is ‘that guy’ — the insecure sexual predator who bullies any woman who dares to hold him accountable,” Clark tweeted.

The Democrat representing the 5th District of Massachusetts said the president should be terrified by Gillibrand.

“She won’t be intimidated and neither will we,” Clark said.

Trump tweeted early Tuesday that Gillibrand would come to his office “begging” for campaign contributions, adding that she “would do anything” for them.

Trump’s attack on Gillibrand came a day after the New York senator called for the president to resign over past allegations of sexual misconduct. His tweet was followed by swift criticism from Democrats accusing the president of making unsavory insinuations about Gillibrand.


“You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office,” Gillibrand said, responding to the president’s tweet.
