Rep. King says 'not a white nationalist' after racist remarks

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to pass a resolution disapproving statements made by Representative Steve King that were roundly criticized as racist, and King himself voted in favor of it.

King, a Republican who represents a conservative district in Iowa, gave a media interview earlier this month in which he questioned why "white supremacy" is considered offensive.

The measure, which passed 424 to 1, stopped short of a formal censure.

The resolution instead quoted King's remarks and then condemned racism in general.

King himself voted in favor of the resolution, which referred to his remarks, because he said his comments were taken out of context and he too condemns white supremacy and racism.

"Under any fair political definition I am simply, an American nationalist," King said.

"America's values are expressed in our founding documents, they are attainable by everyone and we take pride that people of all races religions and creeds from around the global aspire to achieve them.

I am dedicated to keeping America this way.

This conviction does not make me a white nationalist or a white supremacist."
