Iowa Rep. Steve King said Thursday that Rep. Ron Paul, one of the two co-front-runners going into his state’s caucuses next week, is “not dangerous unless he’s president.”

King told Politico that he thinks Paul’s supporters are uninformed, especially about his take on international affairs.

“I don’t think that the Paul supporters have really stepped back and thought about what would happen if Ron Paul were operating out of the Oval Office and the commander-in-chief of our armed forces,” King said.

Paul’s plan to pull all American troops back home would “actually alter the course of the United States’ destiny irreparably and in perpetuity.”

“If he wins here in Iowa, it means something,” King said. “It means that organization matters and it means that Ron Paul has tapped into a political movement I don’t know that he has generated or is necessarily the exclusive leader of it, but it would mean that he’s tapped into a political movement that is isolationist in its nature and more libertarian than my instincts take me.”
