Khizr Khan — father of Capt. Humayun Khan (inset), a Muslim-American who was killed by suicide bombers in Iraq in 2004 while protecting his fellow troops
NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–October 21, 2016. Khizr Khan, a Virginia Gold Star father, recounts the story of his son Captain Humayun Khan, who tragically lost his life in Iraq while saving every member of his unit. Captain Khan ordered his unit to back away from an oncoming suicide bomber while he moved towards it to protect and defend them.
On the debate stage Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton responded to questions about Donald Trump’s recent attacks on women by outlining his long pattern of attacking a variety of Americans, including disabled Americans, veterans, Latinos, African-Americans and Muslim Americans like the Khan family.
Khizr says, “I want to ask Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?”
Not only has Trump repeatedly attacked Muslim Americans in this campaign, he has also insulted our men and women in uniform by arguing he knows more than the generals and repeatedly denigrating our veterans and military families. Khizr Khan, joined by his wife Ghazala, delivered one of the most powerful speeches at the Democratic National Convention this summer and were subsequently attacked repeatedly by Donald Trump.
