Jeffries, who came under fire from the Democratic Socialists of America for speaking at a pro-Israel rally in Washington, D.C., in November, did not release a statement on his official website or post anything on X, formerly known as Twitter, as of this writing, and did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
