Jeffries Blasts GOP as ‘Putin Pals,’ Holds Aid Hostage

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) went on a tirade accusing the Republican Party of cozying up to Putin and being a roadblock to giving aid to other countries. The Democrats are pushing for a whopping $95 billion to help out Ukraine and Israel in their battles against Russia and the terrorist group Hamas. When questioned if he could assure President Joe Biden that the House could deliver this aid, Jeffries dodged the question and pointed the finger at House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), claiming the House has the votes but it’s the Republicans who are dragging their feet.

In a fiery appearance on Face the Nation, Jeffries slammed a supposed “pro-Putin faction” in the Republican Party led by none other than Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson for blocking the legislation. He even hinted at protecting Speaker Johnson from being pushed out of his role should he decide to bring the aid bill to a House floor vote. It’s clear that Jeffries is playing some dirty political games here, and the Republicans are rightfully steamed.


Jeffries also took the opportunity to weigh in on border security, hinting that it might be a winning issue for Democrats in the 2024 elections. But when asked about Rep. Tom Suozzi’s use of the term “invasion” to describe the situation at the U.S. southern border, Jeffries distanced himself from the language, refusing to endorse it. He’s probably just trying to distance himself from a term that hits a little too close to home for his party’s controversial border policies.

The squabble over foreign aid and border security has been causing some major drama in Congress lately, with one group of lawmakers ramping up the pressure on Republican leadership to bring a foreign aid and border security bill to the floor. It’s clear that the Democrats are up to no good, using backdoor tactics to strong-arm the opposition and get their way.

Last month, Jeffries attended a high-stakes meeting with Biden, Johnson, Vice President Kamala Harris, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to discuss the $95 billion foreign aid legislation. Schumer described the meeting as “intense,” and Johnson called it “frank and honest,” but it’s clear that the Democrats are just trying to muscle their way through and get what they want. The Republicans are onto their game, and they’re not having any of it.
