U.S. Rep. Katherine Clark from Melrose is criticizing President Trump for his comments on Twitter about New York U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

The president tweeted Tuesday that Gillibrand is a "lightweight," who used to come to his office "begging" for donations before he became president — and "would do anything" to get them.

Clark tweeted that Trump an "insecure sexual predator" who bullies women.

The White House says the president's comments about Gillibrand are not sexist.

Clark joined WBUR over the phone.
