House GOP leader to meet with King af­ter com­ments

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WASHINGTON -

House Mi­nor­ity Leader Kevin Mccarthy said Sun­day he will meet with Rep. Steve King this week to dis­cuss King’s fu­ture and role in the party and promised ac­tion fol­low­ing the Iowa con­gress­man’s re­cent com­ments in de­fense of white supremacy.

“That lan­guage has no place in Amer­ica.

That is not the Amer­ica I know and it’s most def­i­nitely not the party of Lin­coln,” Mccarthy said on CBS’ “Face the Na­tion.” “Ac­tion will be taken.”

King was quoted in The New York Times last week as say­ing, “White na­tion­al­ist, white su­prem­a­cist, West­ern civ­i­liza­tion — how did that lan­guage be­come of­fen­sive?”
