House GOP leader: ‘Action will be taken’ after King’s white supremacy comment

Tim Scott, the GOP's Lone Black Senator, Takes His Party to Task for Tolerating Unhinged Racists

King told The New York Times in an interview that he didn't understand how "white supremacist" or "white nationalist" were offensive terms.

Randy Feenstra, a Republican state senator, announced Wednesday that he plans to run against King in 2020.

"Action will be taken", McCarthy (R-Calif.) said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

3 Republican, said King's remarks were "abhorrent and racist and should have no place in our national discourse". "That is not the America I know, and it's most definitely not the party of Lincoln".

"Will Republicans take any action against Steve King?". "Anything less than these substantive actions is another tacit acceptance of racism from the Republican Party", Bass said. "They believe there is some segment of the Republican Party that will abandon them if they actually do something about Steve King", Jennifer Rubin said while speaking with MSNBC's Joy Reid.

McCarthy explained that there are a number of steps he can take to pressure King for his statements. President Donald Trump was roundly criticized - including by Scott and other Republicans - for his failure to condemn white supremacists following a violent 2017 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left one counter-protester dead.

Scott said for too long Republicans have been silent on issues of racism. King asked. "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke out forcefully against Steve King's latest controversial comments in an interview on Sunday, promising that "action will be taken" against the Republican congressman from Iowa. Those that he serves on include the agriculture and judiciary committees.

Recently re-elected to a ninth term, King has since insisted he is an advocate for "Western civilization", not white supremacy or white nationalism. We are a great nation and this divisiveness is hurting everyone.

In his interview with the Times, King said he's OK with immigrants of various races legally entering the US ― so long as American culture stays white and European. "We can not continue down this path if we want to continue to be a great nation", she wrote Saturday morning.

Facing backlash, King sought to clarify his statements Thursday, calling himself simply a "nationalist" and attempting to separate himself from people who "support this evil and bigoted ideology".
