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.

This is the one good thing about Trump's election. All the racist shitheads like yourself have come out of hiding and we can see you for what you are. Get ready for unemployment come this election cycle. #prepareyouranus— Matthew Boxx (@meteda1080) 13 июня 2018 г.
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."
