Dairy company Land O'Lakes announced it will no longer donate to Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who has a history of racist remarks and recently endorsed white nationalist Faith Goldy for mayor of Toronto, reports Bloomberg.

Details: King has been a leading proponent of ending birthright citizenship, which President Trump said he would like to achieve via executive order in an exclusive interview for "Axios on HBO." Land O'Lakes faced a boycott Monday after it was revealed the company had donated $2,500 to King's campaign.
