Mike Lindell, the inventor of MyPillow, epitomizes the American success story.

From losing his 20-year marriage, three businesses, and nearly his life in a decades-long battle with alcohol and drug addiction to achieving sobriety through prayer, it's impossible not to root for him.

Recently, rumors swirled that he's planning a run for office in Minnesota, which also happens to be Rep. Ilhan Omar's stomping grounds.

"Well, the answer is not at this time. That was kind of taken all out of context but I did say if — if the Lord wanted me to run, I would run…" Lindell, an outspoken Trump supporter, said. "I would love to do it. But I've got such a big platform going on right now, and I want to help the president help turn Minnesota completely red, and get the right people in office that are going to just help our state to be one of the amazing states in the country."

The "Fox & Friends" hosts pressed Lindell on whether he would challenge Omar, whose politics he has described as "horrific" on the Sara Carter Show earlier in July.

"There's things going on you don't even see. And I will tell you this, I'm going to do so much in Minnesota over the next year and a half, you won't even see any blue," he told Carter.

Lindell was reluctant to speak about his opposition to Omar's politics on "Fox & Friends," choosing only to criticize her "going against Israel" as something against his Christian values.
