Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand sent out a fundraising tweet during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address to raise money for her 2020 presidential campaign.
“Agree? Chip in $5 so we can put an end to this,” Gillibrand tweeted with a gif of herself sighing and rolling her eyes.

“Wages are rising at the fastest pace in decades, and growing for blue collar workers, who I promised to fight for, faster than anyone else.
