Gillibrand joins an increasingly crowded Democratic slate of candidates, seeking the party's nomination to challenge Trump in 2020.
"I'm filing an exploratory committee for president of the United States tonight!"
Registering an exploratory committee with the Federal Election Commission allows Mrs Gillibrand to raise money like a presidential candidate before officially launching her bid. Of course, reporters may have already reached the saturation point when it comes to Gillibrand doing an about-face on her campaign talking points and they no longer pay much attention.
Gillibrand's dedication to outing predators precedes the movement and she has always been a vocal ally of victims of assault and harassment in workplaces, in the military and at universities.
Gillibrand will be the second senator to announce, but she'll be the third Democrat to do so. Her positions became more liberal after she was appointed to fill the Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton in NY when Clinton became Barack Obama's secretary of state.
The established Democrat reportedly has key staffers on board and released a campaign ad on Tuesday night.
The bill fell short in the Senate, but Gillibrand has been relentless about highlighting sexual assault in the military, on college campuses and in the workplace.
But Democratic candidates should beware of how they use social media - the nation's commander-in-tweet, Donald Trump, will likely be watching and waiting for a time to strike.

Consultant Claims Cohen Kept Nearly $40,000 Owed for Rigging Polls
Gauger, meanwhile, said he never got the rest of what he claimed was the total of $50,000 he was owed, the newspaper reported . Cohen has publicly broken with Trump since cooperating with the Robert Mueller investigation.
Price told CNN that he urged the New York Democrat to begin "laying the ground work" in the state and "show that she is ready to get to know people here". Here are some of the business-related issues she has fought for during her political career.
That's after her fundraising took a hit a year ago.
Gillibrand has recruited seasoned Democratic operatives including former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chief spokeswoman Meredith Kelly to head communications and former Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee political director Dan McNally to direct the campaign.
In November 2017, she told The New York Times she thought former president Bill Clinton should have resigned from office during his term, after reports of his inappropriate relationship with Monica Lewinsky came to light.
These decisions could hurt her, even if she cites them as evidence that she matches her feminist rhetoric with action.
Last May, she called on then-New York State attorney-general Eric Schneiderman to resign, after allegations of physical abuse were published in the New Yorker. She's young and charismatic. Gillibrand tweeted back: "You can not silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office".
Others have hinted that they could soon announce presidential bids, with former Vice President Joe Biden, California Senator Kamala Harris, former Texas Representative Beto O'Rourke and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker floated as strong potential contenders in the 2020 race.
