The President called out Gillibrand during a televised address in Utica, New York Monday; asking the crowd “Has she gotten anything done?”
Gillibrand fired-back on social media just hours later, saying “The President refuses to acknowledge the work I’ve gotten done. Sound familiar, ladies?”

DACA DELUSION: Kirsten Gillibrand Says ‘Chain Migration’ is a ‘RACIST SLUR’
New York Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand continued her crusade against President Trump’s proposed immigration overhaul on Monday; telling television viewers that the term “chain migration” is somehow a “racist slur” against immigrants and foreigners.
Gillibrand was speaking with ‘The View’ when she unloaded on the President’s proposal to provide a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for ending “chain migration” and increased funding for his border wall.
“Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi when she says Trump wants to ‘Make America White Again’ and that’s what this is all about?” asked co-host Joy Behar.
“I think a lot of President Trump’s rhetoric is racist. Let’s be very clear: When someone uses the phrase chain migration it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families and make it a racist slur, it is not right. We have to change the debate” Gillibrand said.
