Jeb Bush just rebuked Steve King over his anti-immigrant talk

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) gave Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) a refresher on American values Monday morning. After King tweeted and then doubled down on remarks declaring that "culture and demographics are our destiny" and "we can't restore civilization with somebody else's babies," Bush reiterated that "America is a nation of immigrants."

Bush's comment piggybacked off of that of another "#concernedGOPcolleague," Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.). While Curbelo didn't seem to get a response on what King meant, CNN's Chris Cuomo did Monday morning when he asked King the same question. "I meant exactly what I said," King said, explaining that he was "a champion for Western civilization" who would "like to see an America that's just so homogenous that we look a lot the same."
