It really seems like Donald Trump is trying to anger more people. At the DNC this last week Khizir Khan, a Muslim man whose son died in Iraq, attacked Trump for his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States. Khan’s son died was a US Soldier who died in Iraq in 2004. Khan accused Trump of never having made a sacrifice for this country.
Now Trump could have responded in a lot of ways, what would have worked best for him in my opinion would have been “I am grateful for your son’s service and sacrifice Mr. Khan, I am sorry we have this disagreement”. But Trump didn’t say that.
Just imagine how you would react if it was Hillary saying these words about to a man whose son had sacrificed for this country.
Via ABC News:
In his first response to a searing charge from bereaved Army father Khizr Khan that he’d “sacrificed nothing” for his country, Donald Trump claimed that he had in fact sacrificed by employing “thousands and thousands of people.” He also suggested that Khan’s wife didn’t speak because she was forbidden to as a Muslim and questioned whether Khan’s words were his own.
“Who wrote that? Did Hillary’s script writers write it?” Trump said in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard.”
On the last night of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, Gold Star father Khizr Khan, his wife Ghazala by his side, recounted to the crowd how his son was killed in 2004 by a car bomb in Iraq.
Khan also chastised Trump for seeking to ban Muslims from entering the country, saying that his son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, would not have been able to serve under a Trump presidency.
Even if you’re a diehard supporter of Trump, like I know a lot of you are, ask this question: Why didn’t Donald Trump thank Mr. Khan for his son’s service and sacrifice? Why did he immediately attack a mother and father who lost their son defending this country?
Does Trump really want to anger the families of those who sacrificed for this country? I don’t think so. But he must be more careful with the words he uses. Every single thing he says will be broken down and analyzed. The entire world is watching. Trump is putting his supporters in a terrible position of having to defend these comments and a man who, from the looks of things, doesn’t have any sympathy for a father who lost his son in defense of this country.
