Trump Attacks Emotional DNC Speech by Parents of Fallen Muslim US Soldier

Aug 01, 2016, 01:10

He vows to build walls and ban us from this country. The world is receiving us like we have never seen.

"He is a black soul".

Khan was continuing his case of Trump as divisive with his unconstitutional policy proposals - a theme of his speech Thursday in Philadelphia that seized the nation's attention. The Khans, originally from Pakistan, immigrated to the United States in the 1970s. His sacrifice - and that of Khizr and Ghazala Khan - should always be honored.

"He talks about excluding people, disrespecting judges, the entire judicial system, immigrants, Muslim immigrants".

Trump also said he had helped build a Vietnam War memorial in NY and raised "millions of dollars" for veterans. A person void of empathy for the people he wishes to lead can not be trusted with that leadership.

Speaking to NBC's Meet the Press, Mr Khan said the country should be run by someone with a "moral compass".

Khan asked Trump from the podium.

"What he said originally, that defines him", he tells the Post. "I have to take care of them".

Trump, who has proposed a ban on Muslims entering the United States, responded by claiming Mrs Khan was not allowed to speak.

"If it was up to Donald Trump, [our son] never would have been in America", the bereaved father said on Thursday, adding, "Go look at the graves of the courageous patriots who died defending America - you will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities".

Manafort said the Trump campaign would be sitting down with the Commission on Presidential Debates to discuss the issue and make sure "there's a broad audience watching the debates".

"If you look at his wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say", Trump said, referring to Khan's wife, Ghazala, who stood at Khizr Khan's side during his speech. "She had nothing to say", Trump said in a recorded interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. Every day, whenever I pray, I have to pray for him, and I cry.

"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", Trump said of the father's convention speech.

Ghazala Khan wrote in Sunday's Washington Post that she couldn't bring herself to speak.

O'DONNELL: You were very nervous about going to the convention and actually were reluctant, didn't really want to go out on the stage and especially didn't want to speak because you would not be able to keep your composure and I have to say, I'm just like you.

If it had been up to Mr Trump, he said, his son would not have been in America.

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Russian intelligence services hacked into Democratic National Committee computers and she accused Republican contender Donald Trump of showing support for Russian President Vladimir Putin. "That is not true", Mrs. Khan wrote. My husband asked me if I wanted to speak, but I told him I could not.

"My faith, Islam, has given us strength, all the women and men are equal in God's eyes", she said.

The weekend's nearly over-did you take care of that thing?

"If you look at his wife, she was standing there".
