Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said today that should Hillary Clinton win in November, he “can work” with her. The Republican made his remarks at the Iowa State Fair today, according to the Des Moines Register. While he rejects most of her proposals, King told the newspaper "If it's Hillary Clinton, we don't agree on very much. So you'll probably see me become a vocal member of Congress if you should elect me to go back to Washington after November. So I'll try to break out of my shell if I have to do battle with an agenda I reject."
 
King, who has been a firebrand for immigration restrictions, said: "But I know that 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."
 
King’s remarks came just days after officially endorsing Donald Trump and Mike Pence when he introduced the latter at an event in Sioux City. "I'm walking into those polls and I'm going to vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence for our new administration," King told Trump supporters. "And I'm going to do my best to bring others with me."
 
King was formerly quite active in support of the failed primary bid of Sen. Ted Cruz before the Iowa caucuses and throughout until the outspoken conservative Republican dropped out when he lost the Indiana primary in May. 
 
Back in May, King appeared reluctant to endorse Trump. He told an Iowa talk radio show that while he was not ready to endorse Trump, he wanted to thank Trump for “borrowing” his immigration policy. He said then that he was ready to “help” Trump on that issue. At the time, King said he was not ready -- as was House Speaker Paul Ryan -- to endorse Trump because of the latter’s “insults” to adversaries. “I’m not a guy who holds a lot of grudges, but I have to be able to remember some things along the way.”
