Rep. Steve King falsely claims Obama apologized for slavery — then insists ‘there’s nothing to apologize for’

Published

on

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said Americans want a president who isn’t troubled by the legacy of slavery.

The Iowa Republican told Minnesota talk radio host Dan “Ox” Ochsner earlier this month that Donald Trump had surged to the top of Republican presidential polls because he had appealed to “fed-up” voters, reported Right Wing Watch.

King and Ochsner agreed that Trump offered more tough talk than any candidate since Ronald Reagan — and they accused President Barack Obama of trying to make the U.S. less safe and secure.

“They’ve delighted in dismantling our military, and it seems as though he’s apologized to every continent out there,” King said.

The GOP lawmaker was particularly troubled by inaccurate claims that Obama had gone on an “apology tour.”

“You know, he apologized to Africa for slavery and genuflects to the Arabic princes and genuflects to the emperor of Japan, and it goes on and on,” King said.

Obama has not formally apologized to African leaders for U.S. slavery.

“Americans are tired of apologizing, Ox,” King continued. “We’re a proud people. We’re the vigor of the planet and there’s nothing for us to apologize for until they come and thank us for the things we’ve done.”
