On Monday, Democrats tapped far-left Democrat Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York to serve as their new minority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. Jeffries hangs on the fringes of the Democrat Party and is a well-known election denier. He claimed the 2016 election was stolen and repeatedly referred to 45th President Donald J. Trump as “illigitimate.”
The Washington Post reported, “Jeffries, in line to become minority leader when Republicans take control of the House in January, would be the first Black person to serve as a congressional party leader in U.S. history. House Democrats are also expected to elect Rep. Katherine M. Clark (D-Mass.) and Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) to the No. 2 and No. 3 positions in the caucus, respectively.”
Jeffries also called pro-life Americans a “threat” and wants to create a commission to institute “reparations” for Black descendants of slaves.
