"Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

Steve King last week, pledged Sunday to take action against the Republican House member.

The leader of the Republican minority in the U.S. House of Representatives said Sunday that "action will be taken" against Congressman Steve King, a Republican lawmaker from rural Iowa who has questioned why the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" are offensive.

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, who has been frequently criticized for comments he has made regarding race and immigration, was under fire for comments he made that appeared to defend white nationalism. Under any fair political definition, I am simply an American nationalist.

McCarthy explained that there are a number of steps he can take to pressure King for his statements.

Oakland A's Desperately Trying To Dissuade Kyler Murray From Entering NFL Draft
The A's have a lot invested in Kyler Murray , seeing as how they drafted him with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft. The Oklahoma quarterback has until Monday to declare for the National Football League draft or stick with baseball.

Instead of answering directly, Scalise referred to Republicans' statements denouncing King's comments, and said "many Democrats" - he did not name them - had "aligned themselves with anti-Semites" and "called on physical violence".

"Action will be taken. They believe there is some segment of the Republican Party that will abandon them if they actually do something about Steve King", Jennifer Rubin said while speaking with MSNBC's Joy Reid. "I don't see Democrats condemning Democrats who are doing this kind of thing and using this kind of language".

"Should there be action against Congressman King?" We are a great nation and this divisiveness is hurting everyone.

Still, when asked whether he would support King in the future, Cruz said only he would "urge everyone to stand for principles that matter". "We can not continue down this path if we want to continue to be a great nation".

"Like Donald Trump, Steve King has sought again and again to give comfort to white supremacists, something that should never be allowed in the halls of Congress or the Oval Office", according to her statement obtained by an NBC News reporter. I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party, in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism, is hatred.

Just ahead of last year's midterm elections, the chairman of the House GOP's campaign arm issued an extraordinary public denunciation of him.
