Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand called on President Trump to resign on Monday after several women have come forward accusing him of sexual harassment.

“These allegations are credible; they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking,” Ms. Gillibrand, New York Democrat, said on CNN.

Ms. Gillibrand was one of the numerous female senators who called on fellow Democratic Sen. Al Franken to resign last week after allegations that he groped and forcibly kissed several women. Mr. Franken said he intends to step down in the coming weeks.

Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley of Oregon and Cory Booker of New Jersey, as well as independent Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont have also called on Mr. Trump to resign.
