Presidential hopeful Julián Castro and unabashed racist Iowa congressman Steve King duked it out on Twitter on Friday.

Rep. King instigated Castro by claiming Castro supported federal funding “to abort men’s babies.”

Castro fired back, tagging Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey and asking him why the social media platform hadn’t banned King, who he called a white supremacist. 

Castro later appeared on MSNBC and briefly commented on the feud. He said that on the campaign trail, he visited King’s congressional district in Iowa and said that his constituents have had enough.

In January, King was stripped of his House committee assignments after he defended white supremacy in an interview with the New York Times. “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?,” King asked the Times. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”
