Ted Cruz slams Iowa Republican's 'stupid' remarks on white supremacy

House votes to pay furloughed workers Tim Scott, the GOP's Lone Black Senator, Takes His Party to Task for Tolerating Unhinged Racists

McCarthy, who said the two would meet Monday, didn't outline specific measures he planned to take but suggested that "a number of things" would become public.

Tim Scott, the only black Republican senator, condemned the comments the day after the Times article was published.

"That language has no place in America".

Justin Amash of MI, tweeted, "This is an embrace of racism, and it has no place in Congress or anywhere".

He drew attention to comments made by King on Thursday, when the Iowan wondered aloud: "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?"

King has not apologized for his remarks though in a floor speech Friday, he rejected the label that he's 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".

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

"We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies", he tweeted in 2017.

U.S. bus driver rescues abandoned toddler wandering on street
Milwaukee bus drivers have multiple time in the past grabbed headlines for being alert drivers and helping the community. Ivic took the toddler back to her bus, where a passenger gave up her coat to keep the child warm.

"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.

Senator Tim Scott, a Republican representing SC, penned a thoughtful piece in The Washington Post on how some fellow Republicans like Steve King are damaging the party by spewing thoughts that lack basic fairness and civility yet wonder why the party is considered to be racist. "I think all of us ought to be united regardless of party in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism is hatred, it is bigotry, it is evil, it is wrong".

King narrowly won re-election in November.

He said it's a shame and he could no longer remain silent because these accusations of racism fly in the face of the otherwise good work the party is doing.

And the Congressional Black Caucus was not the only entity to come out against King on Saturday. King has represented western Iowa in Congress since 2003.

"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, calling King's views separate from conservatism "that should be ridiculed at every turn".

Fellow Iowa Republican and Sen.
