AINSLEY, PETE?
AINSLEY: THANK YOU, STEVE.
DEMOCRATIC FIRE BRAND HAS BEEN
NO STRANGER TO CONTROVERSY
DURING HER FIRST TERM IN
CONGRESS, SO MUCH SO THAT OUR
NEXT GUEST HOPES TO STAND IN THE
WAY OF A SECOND.
>> IN OUR OWN CONGRESS, AGENTS
OF ANGER ARE CARRYING US IN
AMERICA FROM WITHIN, LIKE WE
MIGHT SEEM NEARLY ALIKE, BOTH
MUSLIMS, BOTH WOMEN, BOTH
REFUGEES, BUT WE COULDN'T BE
FURTHER APART.
SHE SPENDS HER TIME IN CONGRESS
SEWING SEEDS OF DIVISION AND WE
AREN'T AS FAR APART AS SHE WANTS
US TO BE.
I'M RUNNING TO BRING US CLOSER
TOGETHER.
PETE: THE BID IS ANNOUNCED TO UN
SEAT OM AR IN A FIERY
POLITICAL EDGE.
AINSLEY: THE NEW GOP CANDIDATE
JOINS US NOW, GOOD MORNING TO
YOU, DALI A.
>> GOOD MORNING, FROM
MINNEAPOLIS.
AINSLEY: TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF
AND WHY YOU WANT TO RUN.
>> I'M RUNNING BECAUSE ILLHAM
OMAR IS DOING HARM NOT ONLY TO
HER DISTRICT, NOT ONLY TO HER
STATE, TO THE WHOLE COUNTRY.
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 ILLHAM
OMAR THAT NEEDS TO BE ANSWERED.
ILLHAM OMAR IS HARMING EVERY
AMERICAN WITH HER HATRED, HER
STANDING AGAINST WHAT WE BELIEVE
IN, AGAINST OUR OWN CONSTITUTION
PETE: YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE
WITH QUESTIONS ITS RECENTLY BEEN
REPORTED THAT THE FBI AND I.C.E.
ARE LOOKING INTO INSTANCES OF
PERJURY, IMMIGRATION FRAUD,
MARRIAGE FRAUD, SHE'S GOT PLENTY
OF PROBLEMS.
YOU GO BACK TO THE DIVISION, SHE
SEEMS TO ALWAYS LOOK AT OUR
COUNTRY AS THE BAD GUY, AND WHEN
YOU RUN IN A DISTRICT THAT'S
DEMOCRAT AS A REPUBLICAN HOW DO
YOU FRAME YOUR MESSAGE TO REACH
VOTERS WHO FEEL LIKE SHE JUST
ISN'T REPRESENTING YOU?
>> I BELIEVE IN BUILDING
BRIDGES.
WE ARE NOT ENEMIES.
WE ARE ALL AMERICANS AND WE CAN
FIGHT TOGETHER, AND WE CAN
DISCUSS ISSUES TOGETHER.
HER ACHIEVEMENT AS 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.
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 WERE NOT DIVIDED.
WE ALL LOVE OUR COUNTRY AND
LET'S NOT TAKE YOUR HATE TO
TRUMP AGAINST AMERICA.
WE ARE ALL AMERICANS AND WE CAN
STAND TOGETHER, DEFEND OUR
COUNTRY.
PETE: AMEN.
JUST BRIEFLY WHAT DOES AMERICA
MEAN TO YOU?
>> AMERICA IS MY DREAM.
I CAME TO THE U.S. MORE THAN 25
YEARS AGO, SO BASICALLY, I'M NOT
A REFUGEE ANY MORE.
I'M NOT AN IRAQI ANY MORE.
I AM AN AMERICAN, PERIOD.
THE REASON WHY I SAID THAT I'M
LIKE HER BECAUSE I'M AN AMERICAN
AND A REFUGEE AND I'M A MUSLIM
BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT SHE USES,
BUT SHE HAS HER ACCUSATIONS.
IF YOU EVEN CRITICIZE HER FOR
HER NOT DOING HER JOB, SHE'S
READY TO SAY OH, YOU'RE ANTI-
IMMIGRANT, OH, YOU'RE ANTI-
REFUGEE, ANTI, ANTI, ANTI,
SO DO YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'M GOING TO BEAT YOU IN YOUR
OWN GAME AND LET'S TALK FACE TO
FACE.
AMERICA, FOR ME, IS MY COUNTRY.
AMERICA OPENED THE DOORS FOR ME.
I CAME AS A YOUNG ADULT AND I
BECAME AN INTERNATIONAL
JOURNALIST, I'VE COVERED WARS
AND BEEN THROUGH WAR ZONES ALL
OVER THE WORLD.
I KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
I'VE LIVED UNDER TIE RAN IT AND
I KNOW WHAT DIVISION DOES TO A
COUNTRY AND I WILL NEVER LET IT
HAPPEN IN THIS COUNTRY.
AINSLEY: DALI A, THANK YOU SO
MUCH.
PETE: THANK YOU FOR YOUR COURAGE
