Iraqi Refugee Challenging Omar: Omar Doing ‘Irreparable Harm’ To U.S. With ‘Hatred, Racism’

Dalia al-Aqidi, a refugee from Iraq, told Fox News’s “FOX & Friends” on Friday that she launched a Republican bid for Congress to unseat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) because Omar “is doing irreparable harm” to the country with “her hatred and racism.”

“I’m running because Ilhan Omar is doing irreparable harm not only to her district, not only to her state, to the whole country,” al-Aqidi said. “As an American citizen, my duty is to defend my country and my duty is to stand up to her hatred and racism that she’s spreading within her community, within the country, and even worldwide. I have a question for Ilhan Omar that needs to be answered. Ilhan Omar is harming every American with her hatred, her standing against what we believe in, against our own Constitution.”

“I believe in building bridges. We are not enemies,” al-Aqidi later added. “We are all Americans and we can fight together, and we can discuss issues together. Her achievement [is] she claims that she passed this and that in the Congress, which is the majority Democrat so it’s not achievement. She needs to work for her constituents. She needs to represent them.”

“She doesn’t care about her district. She’s done nothing for her district,” al-Aqidi continued. “All she’s done is to harm her district, harm her followers, so many now, they are looking for someone else, and I’m here to say, do you know what? We Americans, we’re not divided. We all love our country, and let’s not take your hate [for] Trump against America. We are all Americans, and we can stand together, defend our country.”
