Khizr Khan, whose speech at the DNC was a runaway success and has revived America’s long stagnant pocket-Constitution market, continued his media tour today with harsh words against GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
On Saturday, Trump made a series of hateful remarks agains the Khans—a military family who lost their soldier son to the war in Iraq—that are utterly consistent with his character. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos Trump countered Khan’s claim made in his DNC speech that Trump has “sacrificed nothing,” by pointing out that actually he has created jobs for people who made him a ton of money. “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard,” Trump said.
Trump also implied that Khan’s wife, Ghazala, who stood next to him during the DNC speech didn’t speak because she’s a Muslim woman.
Khan evaluated Trump’s comments about his wife as, “typical of a person without a soul.”
“First of all, I thank all America who listened from their heart to my husband’s and my heart, and I’m so grateful for that. And it was very nervous because I cannot see my son’s picture, and I cannot even come in the room where his pictures are. And that’s why when, I saw the picture at my back [on the video screen], I couldn’t take it. I controlled myself at that time. So it was, it is, very hard.”
“He talks about excluding people, disrespecting judges, the entire judicial system, immigrants, Muslim immigrants,” Khan said. “These are divisive rhetoric that are totally against the basic constitutional principles.”
