House GOP leader to meet with King over race remarks

House GOP leader to meet with King over race remarks

"Will Republicans take any action against Steve King?".

Yet, when Americans hear people like King claim that white nationalists and white supremacists are not offensive, it has a negative impact on the entire Republican party. "And it's most definitely not the party of Lincoln". But McCarthy did say that he has a meeting scheduled with King on Monday.

"Action will be taken", he said. "In the future, I hope Steve King takes the opportunity to join us".

"I will not stand back as a leader of this party, believing in this nation that all are created equal, that that stands or continues to stand and have any role with us", McCarthy said.

Action could include censuring King or removing him from committee assignments.

Stephanopoulos tried again: "But yes or no, will Republican leaders call for any action against Congressman King?" Karen Bass, D-California, said in a statement obtained by CNN.

"White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?" "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

In a floor speech Friday, King didn't apologize for his remarks. He said he rejected the "labels" of white nationalism and white supremacy, as well as "the evil ideology they define".

King serves on the Agriculture, Small Business and Judiciary committees, and chairs Judiciary's subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. We are a great nation and this divisiveness is hurting everyone. "This is a uniquely fractured time in our nation's history, not our worst but far from our best, and it is only together that we will rebuild the trust we seem to have lost in each other", Scott wrote in The Washington Post.

In his interview with the Times, King said he's OK with immigrants of various races legally entering the USA ― so long as American culture stays white and European.

King was a co-chair of Cruz's 2016 presidential campaign. I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party, in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism, is hatred.

On Wednesday, two years before the next election, Iowa State Sen.

Assistant Senate Majority Leader Randy Feenstra, a Republican from Hull, announced last week that he would run against King in 2020.
