Who Is Kirsten Gillibrand? | 2020 Presidential Candidate | NYT News


Senator, lawyer, mother, children’s book author and now, Democratic candidate
for president. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is in. “I’m filing an
exploratory committee for president of the
United States tonight.” Hailing from President Trump’s
home state of New York, she’s joining what
will likely be a crowded 2020 field. “Which Democrats —” “Who will
run for president in 2020?” “The list is growing.
It ranges from —” Gillibrand is a former corporate lawyer and congresswoman. Growing up in a political family
in Albany, She fell in love early on. “I was drawn into politics
when I was a little girl. And it was really
with my grandmother, who loved politics.” She was appointed to replace
Hillary Clinton in the Senate in 2009. “Welcome, Senator.” Gillibrand went on
to win the seat again in a 2010 special election and has held it ever since. Over time she has
reversed her positions on immigration
and gun control. “You start off in a different
place on immigration and now you’re more
progressive on that. On guns, you started off, you know, more
kind of pro-Second Amendment. Now, you went from having an
‘A’ to an ‘F’ from the N.R.A.” “I recognize that there was a
lot of things I didn’t know, and I should have been
fighting for them before.” She’s now one of the party’s
most reliably liberal voices. Some of her priorities: A populist economic agenda, women’s rights and
gender equality and fighting for victims of
sexual assault with a focus on the military. Who is being
held accountable for doing nothing since 2013? Who? Which commander?” Gillibrand was the first senator in her party to call
for the resignation of fellow Democrat
Al Franken, following accusations
of sexual misconduct. “Enough is enough.” Here she is during Supreme
Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. “I want to really have Dr.
Blasey Ford’s back tomorrow. So I’m going to
sit behind her. Not only do I support her. But I believe her.” So what is her dynamic
with President Trump? He said: “‘She’s just
a puppet of Schumer. You know that.
He put her there.” He’s also referred to
her as a “lightweight” who would do anything for money. She responded this way. “It was a sexist smear. It’s part of the president’s
effort at name calling and it’s not going
to silence me.” Gillibrand has also
voted against almost all
of Trump’s major nominees. “I urge my colleagues.
Reject this bad choice.” So what are her chances? Gillibrand is seen as
a serious contender, but so far her poll
numbers are low. Her next step? Building a national
profile and campaign.

  1. People wake up!! God is in control not us. GOD is the one who elects presidents no matter how you look at it. God has a plan to make sure his purpose is accomplished. Repent folks Jesus Christ is coming.

  2. She represents the worst part of politics. People who change their view and position to stay elected instead of accepting that the public view changes and that she won't always be elected.

  3. You didn't think that the shamelessly leftist New York Times was gonna tell you the whole truth about her, did you? Did you?

  4. Bye gilibrand…..you take coporate money you take a hike.. Can you believe she is fund raising with drug compnay goons…wtf

  5. No mention of her Wall St and Big Pharma meetings right after she announced she was running? She had to ask her corporate masters for permission to run. Fraud.

  6. Not gonna lie i am so excited, trump is absolutely going to destroy these candidates in the media, I’m gonna sit back with my popcorn

  7. Nice lady ….but in my opinion the "best" Democrat Candidate for the
    2020 Election is Pete Buttigieg, currently Mayor of South Bend,
    Indiana….after reading his Biography very carefully and seeing him at
    the CNN Town Hall…..that man is a Genius…Awesome….Impressive are
    the words to describe him….!! Wisdom and Intelligence at its best
    !…….I am still stunned !.

  8. She is intelligent enough to address the unrecognized fear and paranoia that Trump incites on his own American people! It's not the fact that Gillibrand is a woman, it's the fact that her political desires in our country are extremely critical relative to Trump's delusional aspects in the need for an increased national security as well as the need to spend more of our tax money for the military. Gillibrand is going to be the person to finally shift America into the right direction, where her Green New Deal and Medicare for All will be implemented and taken into effect.

  9. Nope. There’s something about her charisma and presence that I like but I can’t find anything she stands for that would benefit our country. As an attorney, she should have known better than to convict judge Kavanah before the hearing. It’s innocent until PROVEN guilty in the United States of America. May be a good idea to let her grow up a longer, adopt some traditional, conservative American values before considering her worthy of the office of POTUS.

  10. She suz, what a puppet. Sexist? She's a loser. Trump is not serious. trump cured everything already. Go home.

  11. There are no policies included. "Populist economic agenda" and "gender equality". Doesn't mean anything.

    She has great policies supporting employee ownership for example.

  12. dont get me wrong but gender inequality in america is gone. Females have a higher chance of getting higher paid jobs than men. (meaning when you apply). now lets take some simple knowledge. Humans have evolved for the stronger to hunt and protect, (men). and for women to populate and take care of basically everything else. That is how we survived and gotten here. if we skip the evolution of humans then we are all at risk.

  13. She’s a zero, has little to offer, another corporate lawyer who was in bed with the Clintons and has no soul- all of those reversed positions are just ridiculous

  14. I can’t trust anyone who flips to such extremes. She was against gun control and is now for it going from an A to F NRA rating? Plus she’s changed her stance on immigration? I can maybe understand a heart to heart with yourself and growing into a better person changing your ideas, but this is too much.

  15. Was that her son that was killed he looks just she looks just like him that kid that was murdered

  16. She’s interesting. I don’t know much about her policies but I do support her feminism. I like her background.

  17. ONE HOPES THE WOMEN BAND TOGETHER .
    I AM PRO BERNIE SANDERS-ELIZABETH WARREN 2020 .
    WITH ALL OF THE WOMEN RUNNING , JUST HAVE A WOMAN ON THE WINNING TICKET IS A STEP AHEAD FOR WOMANHOOD .

  18. 2:06 oh please its not sexist. just because he says that about this person doesnt mean he's talking about every female in the world and being sexist! stop playing the victim card and hating men. feminists have become insane. and btw im from the independent party and a half middle eastern half coc asian and half native american and christian and a woman.

  19. Great a Hillary Clinton's younger clone. another candidate with zero ideas or policies in its campaign. No thanks waste someone else time and money.

  20. Hey Kirsten tell us again that you don't know what NXIVM is 😉 Alison Mack pleased GUILTY and is cooperating with the investigators. You're GOING DOWN SWEETHEART <3

  21. SHE IS A BABY KILLER. ABORTION IS MURDER. WHY DON'T YOU GILLIBRAND TELL YOUR FAMILY THE TRUTH ABOUT ABORTION?

  22. Who is this person, a dirt bag liberal like many others who believes it's ok to MURDER BABIES & says she is a mother?…
    jump back into the trash can liberal with the rest of them who thinks like you do dirt bag liberal….

  23. None of these 23 Socialists are getting anywhere near the Whitehouse. This lady has 1% support. Stop wasting your time and money. Trump will win hands down.

  24. WHAT WILL YOU DO TO PEDOPHILES LIKE JOE BIDEN ??? NEVER MIND HIS GROPING OF WOMEN … HIS SEXUAL ASSAULTS AND PEDOPHILIA .. YOU DEMOCRAP WHORES HAVE DONE NOTHING …

  25. YOUTUBE PEDOPHILE JOE BIDEN .. OVER 35 PEDOPHILE SEXUAL ASSAULTS ON CHILDREN LIVE ON CAMERA.. NEVER MIND HIS SEXUAL ASSAULTS ON WOMEN … YOU DEMOCRAT WHORES DO NOTHING ..

  26. PLEASE HELP US STOP THESE FILTHY PEDOPHILES AT N.S.A…!!! THEY ARE TAPPING INTO OUR PRIVATE HOMES AND WATCHING OUR CHILDREN !!!!

  27. The fact that this video is still up, incorrectly showing her as a candidate, frightens me. She's frightened me since all of her ridiculous fb polls abt marijuana went up every four months, asking for DONATIONS before a submission was allowed.
