Ted Cruz Won't Rule Out Future Support For White Supremacist Steve King

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

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) promised Sunday that action would be taken against Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who ignited controversy last week after he questioned why terms like "white nationalism" and "white supremacy" had "become offensive".

Instead of answering directly, Scalise referred to Republicans' statements denouncing King's comments, and said "many Democrats" - he did not name them - had "aligned themselves with anti-Semites" and "called on physical violence". "Under any fair political definition, I am simply a Nationalist".

King attempted to clarify his comments to the Times in a statement Thursday, calling himself a "nationalist" and rejecting the "labels" of white supremacy and white nationalism.

The long-serving representative claimed, additionally, that he is not a racist.

McCarthy, who appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation", told host Margaret Brennan after the cameras were turned off that he is reviewing whether King, now serving his ninth term, should keep his committee assignments, according to CBS' transcript of the broadcast. "In the future, I hope Steve King takes the opportunity to join us".

"He likes to create a personal relationship, build the relationship and rebuild the relationship with other world leaders", McCarthy said.

And the Congressional Black Caucus was not the only entity to come out against King on Saturday. "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. We all ought to stand up against it, but it's easy when the Democrats condemn a Republican. "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

"I didn't know who all of these groups were and I detest any kind of hate group", he told the Times-Picayune newspaper then. Those that he serves on include the agriculture and judiciary committees. Action will be taken. I think all of us ought to be united regardless of party in saying white supremacist, white nationalism is hatred, it is bigotry, it is evil, it is wrong.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds indicated Wednesday that she won't support King in the 2020 GOP primary. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Sen. "It was stupid, it was hurtful, it was wrong and he needs to stop it", Sen.
