Ilhan Omar’s GOP challenger tweets ‘I am an American’ after Omar describes herself 6 other ways - www.foxnews.com

Excerpts from article:

...One of at least eight candidates aiming to unseat U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., gave a brief reply this week after Omar posted six ways that she identifies herself.

...“I am an American,” wrote Republican Dalia al-Aqidi, a former Iraqi refugee who hopes to replace Omar in representing Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District.

...The response came shortly after Omar's Twitter message late Sunday, in which the freshman congresswoman listed ways that she describes herself.

...Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also blasted the Omar post, writing, "In today's Leftist world of intersectionality, 'American' is deemed embarrassing & gauche."

...During an appearance on "Fox & Friends" in January, al-Aqidi, a journalist, spoke out against what she described as "Hateful rhetoric" coming from Omar since she took office.

..."Ilhan Omar is harming every American with her hatred, her standing against what we believe in, [and] against our own Constitution."
