Trump could have triggered Muslim candidate wave in midterms
Recent reporting suggests President Trump’s actions in the Arab world have ignited a new wave of Muslim-American candidates for public office. Osama Siblani, publisher of the Arab American News, says Arab Americans and American Muslims are running for office, not necessarily in response to Trump, but because it’s a natural thing for those communities to want to get involved in politics. Dean Obeidallah, host of Sirius XM’s Dean Obeidallah Show, also joined the conversation with MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin.
