Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday President Trump's tweet that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand "would do anything" for campaign contributions wasn't a sexual innuendo. "Only if your mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way," she said. Sanders added that Trump was referring to political "corruption."

Sanders argued that Trump had used similar terminology many times to refer to both male and female politicians of both parties. "There's no way that this is sexist at all," she said.
