According to GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, Khizr and Ghazala Khan had “viciously attacked” him during the Democratic National Convention.
The Khans — parents of fallen US Captain Humayun Khan who fought in Iraq — said the candidate had no empathy for the fallen soldier.
Mr Khan said:
‘His [Trump’s] policies, his practices do not reflect that he has any understanding of the basic fundamental constitutional principles of this country, what makes this country exceptional, what makes this country exceptional in the history of the mankind.
‘There are principles of equal dignity, principle of liberty. He talks about excluding people, disrespecting judges, the entire judicial system, immigrants, Muslim immigrants. These are — divisive rhetoric that is totally against the basic constitutional principle.
‘If you read the Constitution, you will — either deliberately would be violating those principles, or you have not read.
‘That is why I have watched whole year and rest of the world has watched, and the love and affection and support that we have received after my statement at every corner of the street, at every place, the affection, the support, the love that I have received, that we continue to receive, is a testament that he is talking about ignorance.
‘He is not fully aware of these principles.’
The Republican Candidate said he did not have a chance to respond against Khizr Khan’s criticism during the Democratic Convention.
