House GOP leader vows action against King over race remarks

House GOP leader vows action against King over race remarks

King's comments ignited a firestorm, drawing condemnation from the top three House Republican leaders. The House member said he shouldn't be labelled a white nationalist and said he regretted "the heartburn that has poured forth upon this Congress and this country and especially in my state and in my congressional district".

"That language has no place in America", McCarthy said. For example, Scott mentioned that over the past two years, "Republicans have focused on spreading opportunity, and it has paid dividends: From the creation of opportunity zones in some of our nation's most distressed communities to incredible job-creation statistics and low unemployment rates, there's no doubt that the future is brightening for many Americans".

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), the second most powerful Republican in the chamber, wouldn't say on Sunday whether Rep. Steve King (R-IA) will face any consequences for seemingly implying to the New York Times that terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" should not be considered offensive. "Action will be taken". "It was stupid. It was hurtful".

In his interview with the Times, King said he's OK with immigrants of various races legally entering the USA ― so long as American culture stays white and European. "And he needs to stop it", he said while speaking on Meet the Press.

Before the November election, Ohio Rep. Steve Stivers, the chairman of the House GOP's campaign arm, issued an extraordinary public denunciation of him, writing: "We must stand up against white supremacy and hate in all forms, and I strongly condemn this behavior". "I'm having a serious conversation with congressman Steve King on his future and role in this Republican party". Tim Scott (R-S.C.) strongly rebuked King's comments and the congressman himself.

The film's entry in the double digits is a very good sign not just for those associated with it but also the industry as a whole. Apart from Vicky Kaushal, Uri: The Surgical Strike features Yami Gautam , Paresh Rawal and Kirti Kulhari in key roles.

Assistant Senate Majority Leader Randy Feenstra, a Republican from Hull, announced last week that he would run against King in 2020.

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

"I reject that history; I reject that ideology", King said.

"I didn't know who all of these groups were and I detest any kind of hate group", he told the Times-Picayune newspaper then.
