"I remember Kirsten Gillibrand when she came into his office every three days to ask him for money and ask for major campaign contributions," Eric Trump told WABC radio's Rita Cosby. "There is no one who wanted to get into his office more than Kirsten Gillibrand."

"It’s amazing how convenient it is that he’s doing incredibly well there – a minute away from finalizing maybe the most historic tax cut to our nation and here she is," he added. "She follows the whole [Minority Leader Charles] Schumer [D-N.Y.] playbook. Again, it’s a shame, but it’s a distraction. I think we’ve gotten pretty good at tuning out distractions."

The younger Trump's comments came after the president lashed out at Gillibrand on Twitter Tuesday, calling her a "lightweight" and a "total flunky," who would "do anything for" him to donate to her campaign.

Trump has faced increased scrutiny in recent days after three women repeated their allegations of sexual harassment and assault by the president. 

The women had all previously accused Trump of sexual misconduct. But the renewed accusations come as multiple men in politics, media, business and entertainment face increased scrutiny for alleged misconduct.

Gillibrand has been among the most vocal advocates in Congress for crackdowns on sexual harassment, and has said that Trump should resign in the face of the allegations against him.
