Representative Bobby Rush, Democrat of IL, said a censure resolution against King would announce to the world that Congress has no home for "repugnant and racist behavior".

Republican leaders in the US House of Representatives voted to remove the Iowa congressman from the Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business panels. Steve King last week, pledged Sunday to take action against the Republican House member.

"Ultimately, I told him 'You have to do what you have to do and I will do what I have to do, '" King wrote.

Representative Tim Ryan, Democrat of OH, introduced a separate censure resolution against King.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also denounced King, saying his statements were "unwelcome and unworthy of his elected position".

In an op-ed for The Washington Post published on Friday, Scott wrote that the GOP often struggles with "civility and fairness", and pointed to King's latest comments in which he asked when the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" became offensive.

Former Utah Republican Rep. Mia Love, now a CNN political commentator, said on "The Van Jones Show" over the weekend that King's comments hurt the GOP.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tells CBS' "Face the Nation" he intends to have a "serious conversation" with King on Monday. I think he's absolutely right.

McConnell added, "If he doesn't understand why "white supremacy" is offensive, he should find another line of work".

McCaw was a restricted free agent with the Golden State Warriors , but the defending champions chose not to match the contract. McCaw averaged 4.0 points in 128 regular-season appearances with the Warriors in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

Before Romney's remarks - one of the most damming rebukes of King from a member of his own party - Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Illinois, introduced a motion to censure the veteran Republican congressman for his racist remarks.

Last year, he tweeted "culture and demographics are our destiny" and said we "can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies".

Even King's excuse that he was simply defending our "civilization" rings hollow, because he has consistently used that word as a euphemism for "white people".

"I will not stand back as a leader of this party, believing in this nation that all are created equal", and let King's remarks stand as representative of the Republican party, McCarthy said. King said in the interview.

Trump has also found himself in hot water for not immediately condemning white nationalists and neo-Nazis in the past.

Asked about King's remarks on Monday, President Donald Trump said: 'Who?'

Trump backed King's re-election in 2014, appearing with the longtime congressman at an event in Iowa.

Shortly before the 2018 midterm elections, in which King was running, Rep. Steve Stivers, R-Ohio, then the head of the GOP campaign committee, issued an extraordinary public denunciation of him.

King has already drawn a primary challenger for the 2020 election: Randy Feenstra, a state senator.
