Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is standing behind his controversial tweet indicating support of white nationalism, saying on Monday that he’d like the United States to be “so homogenous that we look a lot the same.”
King faced severe backlash Sunday after retweeting an Islamophobic cartoon.

When CNN host Chris Cuomo confronted King about the tweet, the congressman chose to double down on the message.
“This is being condemned by many regions of American politics and citizenry,” Cuomo said about King’s tweet. “What did you mean?”
“Well, of course, I meant exactly what I said,” King replied. “You cannot rebuild your civilization with somebody else’s babies. You’ve got to keep your birth rate up. … You need to teach your children your values and in doing so, then you can grow your population, and you can strengthen your culture, you can strengthen your way of life.”
