The democratic US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand wants to compete in the presidential election of 2020. This is the sharp critic of US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday in the program of talk show host Stephen Colbert.
"I'll apply to the US President," said the 52-Year-old, engaged, among other things, to combat sexual violence against women. "I know that I have the compassion, courage and fearless determination to succeed." She wanted to improve the health care of American families and against "corruption and greed" to fight.
Tonight I announced that I’m preparing to run for president, because I believe we're all called to make a difference. I believe in right vs. wrong – that wrong wins when we do nothing. Now is our time to raise our voices and get off the sidelines. Join me: https://t.co/I1vp93u0wh— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) 15. January 2019
Gillibrand had taken over in 2009, the Senate seat of Hillary Clinton for the state of New York, when Clinton was Secretary of state. In the congressional elections last November, she defended her seat.
