Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) sparred with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Thursday night over the Democratic presidential candidate’s call for him to resign, retorting that the odds of his stepping down from Congress were equal to hers of winning the party’s nomination to take on President Trump in 2020.

The back-and-forth came after Gillibrand on Wednesday called for the embattled nine-term congressman to step down from his position after King questioned whether there would be “any population of the world left” if not for rape and incest throughout history.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Kiersten: [sic] Odds of my resigning are the same as yours of winning the nomination for POTUS: ZERO,” King tweeted, taking aim at Gillibrand’s pro-choice stance.

“[By the way], the [The Des Moines Register and the Associated Press] have corrected the erroneous story you linked. You’re Pro-Abortion & Pro-[Partial-Birth Abortion] & Pro-Infanticide & believe ProLifers are the moral equivalent of racists & antiSemites,” King added.

Kiersten: Odds of my resigning are the same as yours of winning the nomination for POTUS: ZERO. BTW, the DMR & AP have corrected the erroneous story you linked. You’re Pro-Abortion & Pro-PBA & Pro-Infanticide & believe ProLifers are the moral equivalent of racists & antiSemites. https://t.co/d4snnHVreS

Gillibrand fired back, “You know when you’re getting under Steve King’s skin this much, you’re doing something right. P.s. It’s Kirsten.”

Show your support for President Trump!
