British politician Mark Collett has repeatedly caused controversy in the UK over his right-wing statements and admiration for Adolf Hitler.

Republican Congressman Steve King retweeted Mark Collett, who has described himself as a "Nazi sympathizer," on Tuesday, sparking a storm among social media users.

"Europe is waking up… Will America… in time?" King wrote, with a link to Collett's anti-immigration tweet published earlier.

Collett is one of the most infamous Neo-Nazis in the UK and has expressed his understanding for Adolf Hitler.

King has repeatedly come under fire due to his racist and discriminatory remarks.

In 2017, King cited right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders' as a role model, saying that he "understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies."
