Rep. Steve King to Meet with Minority Leader After Praising White Supremacy in NYT

HeadlineJan 14, 2019

Iowa Congressmember Steve King continues to come under fire following his recent interview with The New York Times, in which he praised white supremacy while blasting congressional diversity. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Sunday he would meet with King today to discuss his future in the Republican Party. In the interview, published last Thursday, King said, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization—how did that language become offensive?” King also criticized the diversity of incoming congressmembers, saying, “You could look over there and think the Democratic Party is no country for white men.”
