ROUNDUP: Gillibrand Kickoff Speech Headlines

March 26, 2019

This weekend, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand kicked off her official presidential campaign with a speech outside Trump International Hotel. Gillibrand’s speech took President Trump’s weak and divisive presidency head on, and outlined her vision for an America where everyone has health care, work is rewarded with policies like paid family leave, our economy is booming with green jobs, families are safe from gun violence, the corrupting influence of money has been expunged from our politics, and more.
