The current chair of the House Progressive Caucus, U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), told Jen Psaki that the Democratic Party and President Biden are in “deep trouble” prior to the 2024 election.

Jayapal was responding to a recent poll conducted by Siena College and the New York Times, which shows former President Donald Trump comfortably ahead of Biden in key battleground states.

Rep. Jayapal responded to the poll on Sunday during an appearance on the MSNBC program of former Biden White House press secretary Jen Psaki.

Psaki questioned Jayapal on whether she concurred with her colleague Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who has levied allegations that the president is complicit in the genocide against the Palestinian people residing in Gaza. “”We will remember in 2024,” a video statement from the “Squad” Democrat read.

“Language also matters, and genocide is defined as the internet intentional destruction of an entire ethnic or religious group and a lot of people do listen to statements made by members of Congress,” Psaki said. “So I just wanna be clear; do you agree with the description of this as genocide and the president’s role in that?”

“I am not willing to say that yet,” the congresswoman answered. “But I will just tell you that Rashida is not the first person to say this. There are credible reports from agencies across the world and, you know, the United Nations has said we are hurtling towards the genocide of Palestinians. That is not an isolated view.”

According to the swing state poll, the former president led in a number of states that Joe Biden carried in 2020. At present, Trump holds a lead over his opponent in Biden-held states of Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Arizona, all of which were decided for the Democratic candidate in the prior presidential election.
