Rep. Steve King Asks Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris If She ‘Descended From Slaves or Slave Owners?’

An Iowa congressman known for firing off racist slurs and spewing inflammatory rhetoric is at it once again!

Rep. Steve King took to Twitter earlier this week to ask Vice President-elect Kamala Harris if she is “descended from slaves or slave owners?”

The Republican Congressman, who has a history of controversial statements, sent the tweet on Sunday, November 22, sparking backlash.

As expected, the backlash was immediate on Twitter.

In the new year, the incendiary politician will no longer serve in the House of Representatives since he lost his re-election bid to State Sen. Randy Feenstra. King held this seat for 18 years as the congressman of Northwest Iowa.
