GOP members ready to take action against Steve King

"Anything less than these substantive actions is another tacit acceptance of racism from the Republican Party", her statement continued.

In a similar period following the publication of Rep. Steve King's comments questioning how the phrase "white supremacist" could be offensive, those networks spent just under 30 minutes on the subject.

King told The New York Times in an interview that he didn't understand how "white supremacist" or "white nationalist" were offensive terms. King, who has long history of statements that have been criticized as racist, later released a statement labeling white supremacy an "evil ideology". Under any fair political definition, I am simply an American nationalist.

"Action will be taken".

The California Republican says King's "language has no place in America".

The Congressional Black Caucus on Saturday condemned Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and called on King's fellow Republicans to remove him from his committee assignments.

"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 has any role with us", McCarthy added. Joni Ernst tweeted a statement condemning King.

She had just completed six months of field training when she was ambushed while checking driver's licenses during a routine call . The shooting devastated the Davis Police Department, which has about 60 sworn officers and about 30 other employees.


"I don't see Democrats condemning Democrats on their side who are doing this kind of thing and using this kind of language", he said, without offering a specific example.

King serves on the Agriculture, Small Business and Judiciary committees, and chairs Judiciary's subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. King has represented western Iowa in Congress since 2003. 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 the day after Rep. Tlaib said to supporters that "we're gonna go in and impeach the motherf--", referring to President Trump, the three cable news networks devoted over two and a half hours to the topic.

When Cruz was asked whether he would support King in the future, the senator did not provide a direct answer.

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 vehicle 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.

In November's election, King narrowly defeated his Democratic challenger, Democrat J.D. Scholten, by 3 percentage points.

Randy Feenstra, a Republican state senator, announced Wednesday that he plans to run against King in 2020.
