Steve King shares meme asking who would win modern-day civil war


(WFLA/CNN) – A Republican U.S. Representative is in hot water after he shared a Facebook post over the weekend that boasts red states would “win” a modern day civil war against blue states because red states “have 8 trillion bullets.”

The Iowa Republican wrote in a post Saturday saying “Wonder who would win” alongside a smirk emoji. The photo includes the caption, “Folks keep talking about another civil war… One side has about 8 trillion bullets, while the other side doesn’t know which bathroom to use.”

The post has been removed from Rep. Steve King’s Facebook page and has not responded to CNN’s request for comment.

This is not the first time King has made headlines back in January King made racist comments regarding white nationalists.
