U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota sat down for an interview on Good Morning America to promote her newly-announced presidential campaign Monday.
Klobuchar announced she was running at a snowy rally Sunday in Minneapolis.
"I believe I'll be a good President and our country is tired of being governed by chaos," Klobuchar said.
"I don't think anyone is talking enough about the challenges that are the challenges of our day," she continued during her six-minute interview. "Challenges like the digital disruption and the changes it's making to the workforce. The need for privacy laws. No one is willing to take on the tech companies.
When asked what she brings to the race, Klobuchar mentioned her modest family roots in the nation's heartland. Analysts at FiveThirtyEight say that could make her a desirable candidate in other important Midwestern states like Iowa and Wisconsin.
She went on to say she's a hard worker with a record of success in the Senate.
Klobuchar said if she does earn the Democratic nomination, she's ready to face off against President Donald Trump with both grit and humor.
In response to his tweet about her looking like a "snowwoman" while making her presidential announcement, she laughed and said, "I'd like to see how his hair would fare in a blizzard."
Klobuchar also responded to allegations that she has mistreated staffers and created a hostile work environment in her office.
She admitted to being "tough," but said it's simply because she has "high expectations."
