GOP Rep. Steve King Calls Hillary Clinton ‘Somebody I Can Work With’

steve kingConsidering the rhetoric being deployed on the campaign trail this year, this is a pretty remarkable statement from an elected Republican.

Congressman Steve King, who was strongly behind Ted Cruz before jumping on the Trump Train, made it clear today that he and Hillary Clinton see eye to eye on very little and if he’s reelected, he’ll “break out of my shell if I have to do battle with an agenda that Iowans reject.”

But then, according to The Des Moines Register, King actually said this:

“I’ve sat across the table with Hillary Clinton eye-to-eye, and when you’re working outside of staff and outside of the press she is somebody I can work with.”
