The brash billionaire has alienated many Americans with insults against immigrants, Muslims and women during his nomination campaign.
In his statement, Ryan doesn’t mention Trump but says Capt. Khan’s sacrifice and that of his parents should always be honored.
“When Donald Trump is talking about Islam, he is ignorant”, she wrote. “I will sob.’ Would any mother be able to utter a word under those circumstances?”
“Captain Khan was one such brave example”.
Across the country, veterans and their families closely watched the political back-and-forth. He showed his true colors when he disrespected this country’s most honorable mother… all the snake oil he is selling, and my patriotic, decent Americans are falling for that.
Before it’s here, it’s on the Bloomberg Terminal.
But despite this, Mr Trump maintained his criticism of the pair, saying “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”.
Vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine says he’s “mystified” by what he calls Trump’s “bizarre” allegations.
The presidency of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is a volunteer position at a nonprofit organization. Now, I know some of the other families disagree with this, and I know you deny it. “The picture that emerges is a multibillion-dollar entertainment industry whose entertainers are [particularly in the United States] often expected to raise their own income or live in poverty”, summarizes Post writer Will Hobson.
Trumps’ remarks drew plenty of criticism, prompting him to release a statement later in the day.
In a separate interview with New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who also sought reaction on the Khan speech, replied: “I’d like to hear his wife say something”.
Hillary Clinton also weighed in on Trump’s Khan comments on Sunday in remarks to parishioners at the Imani Temple Ministries in Cleveland, Ohio.
McConnell isn’t going that far. The grieving father of a U.S. Army captain killed in Iraq challenging Donald Trump.
“If you look at his wife, she was standing there”. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing”, Trump told reporters.
Trump responded to a scathing speech at the Democratic National Convention from Khizr Khan, the Muslim father of a soldier killed in Iraq, with insinuations about the Virginia man’s religion as well as unfounded suggestions that his sentiments were scripted by the Clinton team. I had already been through one war, in Pakistan in 1965, when I was just a high school student.
Even Hillary Clinton, whose oratorical skills are not formidable, rose to the occasion. “Hillary voted for the Iraq war, not me!”
“Shame on him! Shame on his family!” Khan’s son, Humayun, earned a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.
Clinton says she was afraid she might cry after seeing her daughter, Chelsea, on stage. “I have to take care of them”.
On Friday, Trump taped an interview with George Stephanopoulos which aired Sunday morning on This Week. “And that’s why”, she said. “I think I’ve done a lot”, Trump told ABC.
That is my son. Maybe she wasn’t allowed to speak. On Saturday, Trump called their son, U.S. Capt. Humayun Khan, a hero but said the issue was about terrorism and the ability of leaders of the current administration to eradicate it.
Former Republican presidential candidate and current Ohio Gov. John Kasich were among those criticizing Trump Saturday.
In his late night statement, Trump alleged that Clinton “should be held accountable for her central role in destabilising the Middle East”. Tens of thousands of jobs.
In response to the question of whether he has made sacrifices, Trump said: “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices”.
