Iowa Congressman Steve King is a disgusting racist. Trump had him visit the White House and raised money for him.
King is so bad even some Republicans have criticized him after recent outrageous comments but Trump has been quiet because he’s a bigot, too.
Steve King's interplay of race and hard-line immigration rhetoric is a vocal expression of often-latent views that Trump exploited to win the presidency.https://t.co/H5Mfsnh5KM

Rep. Steve King to the New York Times: “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” https://t.co/wjSsq6jONO

As Steve King endorses white supremacy and white nationalism again, it's important to remember that Tucker Carlson has consistently given him a national platform: pic.twitter.com/T8TqHbMXnv

Because for some conservatives, making sure that a Republican kept that House seat — even one with white supremacist sympathies — was more important than openly rejecting ideas that were the foundation of some of history's worst ills. https://t.co/yg01jqyakW

NRO editorial: "Dump Steve King." He "may be clumsy, dangerous, bigoted, or some mix of the three. Whatever he is, he doesn't deserve the support of conservatives…" https://t.co/s3WdOtY3JJ

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy says of Rep. Steve King: “Everything about white supremacy and white nationalism goes against who we are as a nation. Steve’s language is reckless, wrong, and has no place in our society…”

It’s not enough to condemn @SteveKingIA's unconscionable, racist remarks. Republican leaders must actively support a worthy primary opponent to defeat King, because he won't have the decency to resign. https://t.co/MRAMnuJaym

Steve King NOT concerned about backlash from GOP.
"I've heard nothing like that — why would anybody do that?" he said of losing committee seats. On not getting NRCC endorsement, he said: "That's nothing new."
House GOP leaders mum on punishing King https://t.co/0FP9WrMZ30

Steve King is on the House floor trying to offer a benign explanation for his "white nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?" quote to the New York Times, and it is confusing.
