House GOP leader to meet with King after comments
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?”
