During a White House press briefing Friday, press secretary Jen Psaki failed to publicly condemn the ongoing far-left violence from Antifa following the acts of vandalism and destruction that took place on Inauguration Day in Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon.

Antifa vandalized a Democratic Party office and other buildings and scuffled with police on Wednesday, protesting against Joe Biden’s inauguration.

People dressed in black and with their faces covered broke windows and the glass door at the Democratic Party of Oregon business office in Portland, spray-painting an anarchist symbol over the party sign, video posted on social media showed, Reuters reported.

“We don’t want Biden. We want revenge for police murders, imperialist wars, and fascist massacres,” read a banner Antifa marched with.

Asked on Friday if Joe Biden has any comment on the ongoing violence in Oregon and Washington that has been seen in the recent days, press secretary Jen Psaki, replied, “Certainly, we had our team on the ground, our national security even before 12:01 early in the morning on Inauguration Day, because we wanted to be able to monitor events happening across the country and any unrest that was resulting from the last couple of weeks.”

“I haven’t spoken with [Biden] specifically about those events [in Portland and Washington], but it is something our national security team … is closely monitoring, of course. If we have an additional update, I’m happy to provide it to you,” Psaki claimed. Video Below
