Democratic lawmaker challenges Karine Jean-Pierre for ‘weak answer’ on rising antisemitism

Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Fla., called out White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre over her “weak answer” to a rise in antisemitism in the United States amid the Israel-Hamas conflict.

On Monday, Jean-Pierre said she had not seen any “credible threats” when asked about the Biden administration’s “level of concern” regarding potential attacks on Jewish Americans.

“Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim have endured a disproportionate number of hate-fueled attacks and certainly President Biden understands that many of our Muslim, Arab-American and Palestinian-American loved ones and neighbors are worried about the hate being directed at their communities,” she added.

Moskowitz would later criticize her comments on X.
