Senator Gillibrand’s Response To The State of the Union Speech

February 6, 2019

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today released the following statement in response to President Trump’s State of the Union address:

“President Trump has had years to bring this country together, but instead he has chosen to divide the country across every single line he can imagine. If President Trump wants to convince the country that he actually cares about bringing us together, then he can start by no longer using government workers as political pawns, reuniting the families that his Administration ripped apart at the border, and stopping with political wedge issues like telling women they can’t make their own health decisions in consultation with their doctor.”
