‘Hurting the American people’: Jeffries speaks out on GOP ‘civil war’

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries talks about the looming government shutdown during his weekly press conference saying, “They need to end their civil war because it’s hurting the American people. I’m not saying they all have to like each other. But we should be able to figure out a way to get the business of the American people done.” In this video, Jeffries also talks about meeting with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy.

    In only four years, Trump added more debt to the national deficit than any president in history. Check your facts!

    This Republican Congress only wants to harm and punish the American People for not reelecting Trump. And they will create havoc so Biden's presidency will fail, or so they think.

    Democrat voters need to wake up and see what their party doing to them. Wake up and open your eyes and ears. This guys say they are going to do something and then do the opposite. Wake up people. I used to be a democrat and followed them blindly.

    This democrats, like Jeffries, are the ones bringing this country down. High inflation, high gas and diesel prices, high food prices and higher interest rates.

    Well said Senator Jeffries! I am really happy with the job he is doing. The Dems have a good leader in the House.

    Also “They shut themselves down…” says a lot about Republicans. I didn’t remember that.

    This man is so dishonest , he is another Democrat how wants control of the people , I have been a democrat for 40 years and have come to the conclusion that Democrats have No intention of doing the right thing. I do not want transgenderism taught to my grandchildren what about jamming the left wing down the American peoples throat.

    It's mind boggling to me to see a successful President pass historic Legislation to help American people and Minority leader Jefferies articulate common sense ideas to help average citizens but almost a third of the Country wanting to see an ignorant bigoted conman like Trump back in the White House.

    Whoever thought waving your hands around while speaking publicly was a good means of conveying your thoughts and ideas, needs their head examined. The LAST THING you want in public speaking is to create a distraction for your audience.

    THAT is precisely what 🙌 waving hands 🙌 does—it's a distraction to the audience, for which your message gets lost.

    Pass a law taking away politicians paychecks when they shut down the government and I doubt it will ever happen again. They do this every time and could have passed something long ago if they had done their jobs. Why should you get paid while your constitutants suffer. This hateful revenge only proves you are incapable of doing your jobs.

    So since the MAGATS can't get the Dems and regular Americans to answer their call for a civil war, they've decided to start one with the regular (sane) republicans in their party? The problem with that is that many of them are not willing to stand up to these authoritarian loving crazies, why do they think that they'd want to fight a war with them?
