Donald Trump Fires Back at the Parents of Fallen Muslim Soldier

The question of sacrifice came after Khizr Khan addressed the DNC Thursday night to speak about his late son, Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in 2004 in Iraq by suicide bombers after he waved his soldiers back.

Post-convention it has become clear the presidential race will be fought in the struggling manufacturing towns, cities and rural farming communities of the Rust Belt, as Clinton used the days following her convention to try and win back some of the white working class voters that once made up a key piece of the Democratic Party's electoral coalition.

"Who wrote that? Did Hillary's script writers write it?" She stood silently at her husband's side last week as he blasted Trump in a speech at the Democratic National Convention.

Khan said he asked his wife whether she wanted to address the convention.

Responding to Trump's latest statement, Khan said, "This is faked empathy".

"While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false) and say many other inaccurate things", said Trump. Khan spoke in prime time on the final night of the conference, minutes before Chelsea Clinton took the stage in Philadelphia to introduce her mother as the Democratic presidential nominee. On Saturday, Trump called their son, U.S. Capt. Humayun Khan, a hero but said the issue was about terrorism and the ability of leaders of the current administration to eradicate it. And Paul Rieckoff, the founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, said "For anyone to compare their 'sacrifice' to a Gold Star family member is insulting, foolish and ignorant". There's something about him I do like. "And this is totally unfit for the leadership of this beautiful country". In the thunderous ovation that followed, he produced a booklet from his pocket and held it up, saying, "I will gladly lend you my copy. Many thanks to the Khan family for your sacrifice, we stand with you". The fire marshal, Brett Lacey, was recently honored by the city as "Civilian of the Year" for his role in helping the wounded at a 2015 mass shooting at a local Planned Parenthood.

Bill Clinton, the Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, and others voiced their distaste for Trump's statement.

The Trump campaign swaggered out of the convention weeks, feeling bullish about the bump the nominee received from his own nominating convention. Look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. "She had nothing to say", Trumpsaid, adding that "maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say". But he says he agrees with the Khans that a travel ban based on religion - one idea previously floated by Trump - is "simply contrary to American values".

The 52-page pamphlet printed by the National Center for Constitutional Studies sells for $1 and was in the Top 10 best-selling books on Amazon on Saturday afternoon. "You have sacrificed nothing and no one". "We are equal, we are the part of our husbands, they are the part of us".

TRUMP: OK, well, he's there in a certain way, but I'm not there yet.

In a wide-ranging interview on "Fox News Sunday", Clinton said the majority of voters approved of her work as a U.S. senator and as secretary of State under President Barack Obama. And do you think that Vladimir Putin wants to defeat you or see you defeated and Donald Trump elected president? Republicans are falling for that.

The Trump campaign also released transcripts of the ABC interview, in which the reality TV star said of the father: "He was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me..." It also comes with a roughly $250,000 annual stipend and complimentary housing at a five-star Swiss resort.
