Iowa Republican Steve King faces party action over 'white supremacist' remark

"I will admit I am unsure who is offended by the term "Western civilization" on its own, but anyone who needs "white nationalist" or "white supremacist" defined, described and defended does lack some pretty common knowledge", Scott wrote in the The Washington Post.

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.

Scott went on to discuss incidents of white supremacy, including the white supremacist who recently killed two black people in a parking lot in Kentucky; the rally in Charlottsville, 18 months ago, when white nationalists killed a white woman with a auto and "severely beat multiple black people;" an incident four years ago when a white supremacist murdered nine African Americans in a church in Charleston, S.C. and the 1998 killing of James Byrd, Jr.

"That language has no place in America", McCarthy said on the program.

"Republicans should make clear Mr. King is no longer welcomed in their party or Congress", Karen Bass (D-Calif.), the CBC chair, said in the statement. "I'm having a serious conversation with Congressman Steve King". "That is not the America I know, and it's most certainly not the party of Lincoln".

McCarthy's vow to "take action" comes a day after the Congressional Black Caucus released a statement calling on House Republicans to remove King from committee assignments.

King's comments ignited a firestorm, drawing condemnation from the top three House Republican leaders.

King was a co-chair of Cruz's 2016 presidential campaign.

Leading Republicans were some of the first to condemn those remarks. Sen. "Today the New York Times is suggesting that I am an advocate for white nationalism and white supremacy", he tweeted. "And I think we need that clarity and I'm certainly going to urge everyone to provide that clarity".
