Rep. King has retweeted Mark Collett, a British neo-Nazi that has engaged in anti-Semitic speech and in Holocaust denial.

Rep. King has also retweeted  Lana Lokteff, a white nationalist who has said “[America] can never, ever be too white” and made anti-Semitic comments such as “#SeinfeldTaughtMe why people don’t like Jews”.

Congressman King endorsed in 2018 a Toronto mayoral candidate with ties to neo-Nazis.
