As voters in Alabama head to the polls to decide who their next senator will be, President Trump has set off a furor among Democrats with a tweet directed toward Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Trump tweeted Tuesday that Gillibrand would come to his office "begging" for campaign contributions and "do anything" to get them. Gillibrand said Trump's attack was a "sexist smear attempting to silence my voice." Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign over past allegations of sexual misconduct.
