Trump asked about the king's comments on the White House's southern lawn and said, "I haven't – I haven't followed it. I really haven't followed it."
Disputes were kicked after the king asked the times last week, "White nationalist, white supremacist, western civilization – how did that language become offensive?"
The comments were just the latest to stir up rebellion from the long-running Iowa Congress.  King later condemned "someone who supports this evil and confused ideology" of white nationalism and white supremacy.
Meanwhile, Trump himself has engaged in racist dog flaps by himself during the weekend.
On Sunday, Trump sent a blatant racist tweet about Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a potential 2020 subscriber who shared a live stream video from her house. Trump, reprising his racist take Warren, aimed at her claim to Native American heritage.
"If Elizabeth Warren, who was often referred to me as Pocahontas, made this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knot instead of his kitchen, with her husband wearing full Indian clothing, it would have been a smash!" Trump tweeted
Later Sunday, Trump quoted a blatantly white nationalist column written by Pat Buchanan, former director of communications for President Ronald Reagan.
"The United States, as we have known it, will cease to exist … And the Americans will not be cautious at the good night," trumped Trump, quoting Buchanan's paragraph entitled "Memo to Trump: Explain an Emergency . "
In the same column, Buchanan wrote:" The more multiracial, multiethnic, multicultural, multilingual America becomes – the less it looks like Ronald Reagan's America – the more reliably democratic it becomes. The Democratic Party is hostile to white men because the smaller proportion of the American population as white men becomes, the earlier democrats inherit the national property. "
Trump 1999 called Buchanan a" Hitler lover "and an" anti-Semitic "on NBC's" Meet The Press. "
A consistent Trump theme
Weekend tweets are a continuation of the themes found under Trump's campaign and presidency.
Trump, during a 2017 news conference after violence on a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, tried to compare white supremacists on one side with "alt left" on the other side. The comment came after his highest White House aides spent days trying to clear up Trump's first response to anxiety, during which he blamed "many sides" for the violence that killed a person when a man who participated in the Unite the Right rally drove his car into opponents.
Remarks from Trump's presidential campaign message also reflect some of the king's own long-standing feelings about immigrants.
"When Mexico sends its people, they do not send their best," said Trump during his campaign announcement in 2015. "They send people who have many problems and they cause these problems with us. They bring drugs, they bring crime, they are And some assume that they are good people. "But it is not just the feelings and insensitivity of immigrants to Indians that Trump has invoked. Trump has made insensitive comments aimed at many racial, ethnic and religious minorities – including African Americans, Muslims and Asians.
Trump's Political History with King
Although Trump said he has not followed the news of King, he has been a longtime ally of the Iowa Republican. In 2014, Trump played a robocall
for King and participated in a private fundraiser in Iowa in the king's honor.
Trump, in front of the fundraiser, said that King was a "special guy, a smart person, with true justice on almost everything," according to the Des Moines Register.
Trump also told the newspaper that his ideology is so synchronized with the king that "we do not have to compare notes."
But the King's history of publicly rebellious racist and immigrant feelings precedes Trump's 2014 support.
By 2013, the king had been the subject of media review for his comments, which indicates that the DREAM law would open the border to good students and drug mules to the same extent.
"For anyone who is a valedictor there is another 100 out there that they weigh 130 pounds and they have calves the size of the cantaloupe because they take 75 pounds of marijuana over the desert," King told Newsmax at time.
And before Trump's approval in 2014, King stated in an interview on CNN's "New Day" – without proof – that the parents of young girls sent to the north to enter the United States along the southern border had given them "birth control pills" before the trip.
"This is a man-made catastrophe, and the man who caused it is Barack Obama," King said, calling the former president's immigration policy an "ad that has been such a huge magnet that has caused these families to give their daughters p- Pills and sends them down into violent roads all the way through Mexico. "
The recent King's comments have been rejected by Democrats and members of his own party, including Top House Republican Kevin McCarth y, who promised Sunday to tell King for his comments.
