Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) has delivered a candid message for fellow Democrats at New York University’s Personal Democracy Forum.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) doesn’t mince words on the subject of whether President Donald Trump has kept his promises to the American people.

She raised the issue during a speech at the Personal Democracy Forum at New York University on Friday. As seen in the video below, uploaded to YouTube by Need To Know (NTK) Network, Gillibrand says, “Has he kept any of these promises? No. F**k no.”

Gillibrand quickly apologized, saying, “Sorry. I understand this is a younger audience, it’s OK.”

Gillibrand, who is no newbie to using colorful language, also shared a candid message for fellow Democrats. 

“Even though we as Democrats are on the right side of almost all issues, many hardworking families haven’t felt that we’ve been fighting for them,” she said. “Fundamentally, if we are not helping people, we should go the fuck home.” 

Following her remarks, a forum moderator asked Gillibrand about Trump’s bizarre “covfefe” tweet last month, NTK News reported

“I think it was ‘coverage,’ and he just mistyped it,” Gillibrand answered. “And he was bitching about the media and he just forgot to finish.”

The New York senator had been considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate. However, she announced in May that she’s ruled out a run, saying she is “dedicated to serving our state as our senator, and I’m running for reelection so I can continue to be their senator.”

This story has been updated with additional remarks from Sen. Gillibrand.
