Donald Trump thinks he has made more sacrifices than a Muslim soldier who gave his life for this country. And he doesn't mind attacking the man's Gold Star Family to gain support among his racist voters.
And this has been going on now for a week.
From USA Today
Khan spoke on the final night of the Democratic convention, giving a moving tribute to his son before bashing Trump.
"If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would have even been in America," Khan said. "He vows to build walls and ban us from this country. Donald Trump, you're asking Americans to trust you with their future. Let me ask you, have you even read the United States Constitution?"
Khan held up a pocket Constitution and offered to lend it to Trump.
"You have have sacrificed nothing, and no one," he finished.
...In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Trump fought back against the idea that he hadn’t made any sacrifices.
"Who wrote that? Did Hillary's script writers write it?" Trump said. Khan declined the use of a speechwriter, according to Politico
"I think I've made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard,” Trump said.
Trump also went after Ghazala Khan, who stood beside her husband during his speech but did not speak. Trump implied that she may not have been allowed to speak because of her religion.
This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 1, 2016

No one would have been talking about this Khan thing if Trump would have responded in a decent way but his narcissism just won't allow it.— John (@linnyitssn) August 2, 2016

Tonight Trump's spokeswoman went on CNN and blamed Obama for the soldier's death in 2004. The only problem is that Obama wasn't President in 2004 - he didn't get elected until 2008! Idiot!
