Trump Has 'Chosen To Divide The Country,' Gillibrand Says

Posted: Updated:

While Congresswoman Elise Stefanik had good things to say about president Donald Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday night, New York's junior senator had another take.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is a Democrat who's considering a run for Trump's job in 2020. She's formed a committee to explore whether or not she should throw her hat in the ring.

In his address, Trump called for bipartisanship and for Republicans and Democrats to work together.

Here's what Gillibrand had to say about Trump's 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.”
