"President-elect Biden needs to hit the ground running," Gillibrand said on the podcast. "He needs to be able to have a comprehensive plan in place." Gillibrand also slammed President Trump's legacy at the White House, saying, "President Trump has really damaged our institutions and damaged our democracy in a way that is really unforgivable."
