Trump Wastes No Time in Trolling Democrats After Kirsten Gillibrand Drops out of Presidential Race
Just days after reports that former staffers were urging Kirsten Gillibrand to end her presidential campaign, the Senator officially dropped out of the race earlier today via a video posted to Twitter:
Today, I am ending my campaign for president.
I am so proud of this team and all we've accomplished. But I think it’s important to know how you can best serve.
To our supporters: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Now, let's go beat Donald Trump and win back the Senate. pic.twitter.com/xM5NGfgFGT

Her announcement came just over four hours after a tweet asking for enough donations to keep her in the running to qualify for the next round of Democratic presidential debates, which are scheduled for next month.
Evidently she didn’t make the cut.
Gillibrand told the New York Times she did plan on endorsing another candidate during the primary, but wouldn’t say who:
Gillibrand said in an exclusive interview with The New York Times that she plans to endorse another candidate in the primary but has yet to pick which one. She stopped short of saying she would pick another woman in the race.
“I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country,” she said. “I think a woman nominee would be inspiring and exciting.”
President Trump wasted no time trolling the Democratic party and fellow New Yorker Gillibrand over the announcement not even an hour after she made it official:
A sad day for the Democrats, Kirsten Gillibrand has dropped out of the Presidential Primary. I’m glad they never found out that she was the one I was really afraid of!

In spite of her hard left turn on the Democratic party’s signature issues like abortion on demand, the most memorable moments from Gillibrand’s presidential campaign were those that painted her in a less than flattering light.
Frontrunner Joe Biden made Gillibrand look very small at the last Democratic debate when she tried to use a decades-old article written by him to suggest he didn’t want women to work outside of the home. Watch:

Then there was the woman who became Internet famous during a Gillibrand campaign stop in February after walking past the candidate, saying she just wanted to get some ranch dressing:
An Iowan tried to walk past Kirsten Gillibrand as she addresses the crowd here at the Airliner in Iowa City. Gillibrand turned toward her, but the Iowan apologized, “Sorry, I’m just trying to get some ranch dressing.”

Gillibrand never broke out of the below-1% range in polling for the entirety of her candidacy, which she partially blamed on the stance she took in calling on Sen. Al Franken (D) to resign in the midst of a #MeToo scandal in December 2017.
Next up on the drop out list: NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio?
