No surprises. No scandals. Just Honest Abe.
Aiyash, like other muslims running in the US elections, is against President Trump. On his facebook, Aiyash wrote:
From the onset, this President and his administration have pushed forward policies rooted in xenophobia, bigotry, and “otherizing” people. His policies embody small leadership, rooted in division and bigotry.
Now more than ever, we need bold leaders that value inclusion and diversity and will work towards that more perfect Union. You may try to ban Muslims, but Muslims, like me, are running for office, and we will represent the very best of this country.
#NewEnergy is coming, and you can’t ban me.
The election is August 7, 2018
