"When people with opinions similar to King's open their mouths, they damage not only the Republican Party and the conservative brand but also our nation as a whole", Scott wrote, adding, "Some in our party wonder why Republicans are constantly accused of racism - it is because of our silence when things like this are said". And he needs to stop. I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party, in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism, is hatred.

King was a co-chair of Cruz's 2016 presidential campaign. "When it comes to speaking out against bigotry ― whether it is the [Ku Klux Klan] or Nazis or anything else ― I have a lifetime of standing up to that bigotry and I'll continue it".

"We'll see what we do about Steve King, but nonetheless, nothing is shocking anymore, right?" "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

Many were outraged by King's comments questioning the offensiveness of white supremacy.

The nine-term Iowa congressman's remarks drew swift backlash from both sides of the aisle.

The House Republican leader 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.

Watch:"That language has no place in America".

Asked if he was concerned about losing committee positions, he told reporters: "I've had no discussion about that". "Under any fair political definition, I am simply a Nationalist".

"Action will be taken", McCarthy said Sunday of the Republican on CBS's "Face the Nation".

King has been assigned to agriculture, small business and judiciary committees, according to his House website. Republicans have chided him for his remarks but the Congressional Black Caucus has a form of punishment for King: removing him from all of his committee assignments.

"Anything less than these substantive actions is another tacit acceptance of racism from the Republican Party", her statement continued. It was the latest in a history of inflammatory comments by King, and one that has him in hot water with his party. And while his bigoted rhetoric was called out by several media outlets, including HuffPost, in the run-up to the midterm election in November, King was re-elected to House for a ninth term.
