House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said he'll talk with Iowa GOP Rep. Steve King on Monday about his “future and role in the Republican Party” — promising “action will be taken.”
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” McCarthy decried King’s apparent embrace of the terms “white supremacist” and “white nationalism,” saying “that language has no place in America.”
“I have a scheduled meeting with him on Monday,” he said, vowing: “I tell you this, action will be taken. I am having a serious conversation with Steve King on his future and role in this Republican Party.”
McCarthy also said he’s unconcerned about the details of President Donald Trump's conversations with Russia’s Vladimir Putin — and wants the president “to build a relationship” with him and other world leaders
“He likes to create a personal relationship, build the relationship and rebuild the relationship with other world leaders,” McCarthy said.
According to McCarthy, a legislative solution is needed to fund a border wall, and bring the partial government shutdown to an end. And he said the solution has already been constructed.
“We're not asking the Democrats to do something they haven't done before. They have voted for boarder wall and fencing,” he said, adding: “I would take the language we voted on before. The president would add in, ‘no concrete’… That would allow us to do the job that needs to be done.”
