The chair of the House Democratic Caucus, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), would not say whether he thought America’s policy toward Israel needs to be reexamined during a press conference on Wednesday,

A reporter asked Jeffries about whether he thought a broader conversation about America’s policy toward Israel is necessary, citing Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) attempts to force such a conversation with provocative and anti-Semitic remarks.

“The overwhelming majority of the House Democratic Caucus is strongly pro-Israel and will continue to be so into the future,” Jeffries responded.

The reporter pressed Jeffries on whether he thought the conversation was necessary.

“Conversations on foreign policy and domestic policy matters are critically important. We continue to have those conversations, both at the committee level as well as the caucus level, as needed,” Jeffries said.

“I’ll take that as a no comment,” the reporter responded to Jeffries’ non-answer.
