Recently a father of a Muslim-American soldier who was killed in the line of duty while fighting for America in Iraq War stood up and delivered a speech towards Donald Trump. He said that Trump has sacrificed nothing and has been doing nothing but smearing the character of religious minorities like Islam in America.
Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of the brave patriots who died defending America — you will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one. – Khizr Khan, Father of Army Capt Humayun Khan.
In a response, Donald Trump had nothing positive to say. Instead he went on and started criticizing the family of the fallen American Soldier.
If you look at his wife, she was standing there, she had nothing to say, she probably — maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say, you tell me. I’d like to hear his wife say something.
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.

Donald J. Trump has issues with the family of a Muslim American Soldier killed in Iraq. I was also in the US Army and even went to Iraq. Would you ban me from entering the US? Donald Trump and all your supporters, you must watch this video. I am building bridges and bonds between Pakistan and the USA. Why can’t you do the same?
