House Democrat Caucus Chair Rep. Hakeem Jeffries refused to condemn Ilhan Omar after she said Pro-Trump events are ‘klan rallies’. He went on to say that he has “great respect” for her.
When a reporter asked him for his reaction to Rep Omar’s hateful comments about conservatives, he claimed he didn’t know the “context” in which they were said.
“Well I dont know the context within which she has made those remarks, but we do know that many of Donald trump’s rallies have resulted in violence, hatred has been spewed, by none other than the President himself. I personally have often referred to his rallies as ‘Make America Hate Again’ rallies. I can’t comment on Ilhan’s remarks, I’ve got great respect for Ilhan,” he responded.
There you have it, folks.
The Democrats will continue
