One of the biggest stories of Tuesday morning has been the Twitter attack by Donald Trump attack Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. After Gillibrand called on Trump to resign over the growing number of allegations of sexual assault against him, president gave a response that didn't go over well with his critics.

"The View" on Trump

Following the sexual assault and harassment scandal surrounding film producer Harvey Weinstein, many women have felt more comfortable to speak out and accuser various men in power of sexual misconduct. With the entertainment industry and the world of politics being impacted, Donald Trump has also been forced to deal with his past, which includes over a dozen women making allegations against him.

The claims were first made public in the weeks leading up to the election last year following the release of the "Access Hollywood" tape that nearly derailed Trump's campaign. Despite this, the former host of "The Apprentice" denied the allegations and was able to weather the storm on his way to a victory over Hillary Clinton. With sexual misconduct scandals dominating the headlines, 16 women who had previously accused the president of assault and harassment came forward and called on Congress to launch and investigation into their claims. Responding to the news was Kirsten Gillibrand, who doubled down on calls for Trump to resign. After Trump fired back with a sexually suggestive tweet, the hosts on "The View" gave their thoughts during the December 12 broadcast.

On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump targeted Sen.

Kirsten Gillibrand due to her push to have him resign over allegations of sexual misconduct. In his tweet, Trump claimed that the senator had previous been "begging for campaign contributions" before he was president, while also saying she would "do anything for them." Many took Trump's remarks to mean that Gillibrand would perform sexual acts in order to raise money, which set off the women on "The View."

"What is that tweet implying?" co-host Joy Behar wondered, before asking, "What do you think?

Is it sexual favors?" Fellow co-host Sara Haines doubled down, saying Trump's tweet was "ironic in a sexual harassment conversation to use that."

Doubling down

Co-host Sunny Hostin took a more aggressive tone, saying she thought it was "disgusting." "If my 15-year-old tweeted that out about one of his classmates, his phone would be snatched," Hostin said, before describing Donald Trump's behavior as "beneath the dignity of the office" and "infantile." Co-host Whoopi Goldberg agreed, saying "I hope congress investigates" because "ethics is important."
