Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Saturday lamented that the U.S. has become a “third world country” under President Obama.
Appearing at a campaign event with Donald Trump, King said that while he thought the “rule of law” was enough, he’s concerned about “the things that are coming at us from across the border.”
He claimed that undocumented immigrants and drugs are entering the U.S. along with ISIL militants and Ebola.
“That’s ISIS seeking to come into the United States threatening us, and we saw the beheadings in Oklahoma, we’ve seen the paralysis disease D68 that seems to be in most if not all of our states — happens to be the same places that the unaccompanied alien juveniles have been sent to … and on top of that, the biggest threat of all is Ebola,” King said while Trump nodded in the background, according to video captured by the Iowa Republican.
As Right Wing Watch points out, there are no substantiated links between the border and ISIL, Ebola or the Oklahoma beheading.
King then criticized President Obama’s “feckless” leadership.
“He must think now that he’s president of the world, that he’s going to treat people in Africa as if they were American citizens and somehow we can’t define this American sovereignty or American citizenship,” King said.
