McCain: Trump defamed Khan, does not represent GOP

McCain: Trump defamed Khan, does not represent GOP”

"They become a political family when you stand in front of 20 million people at a Democratic" convention, Lewandowski said during the segment, arguing that speaking at a political event took away the Khan family's shield of living as a private citizen.

That moment - when the father of a Muslim U.S. soldier killed in Iraq addressed Donald Trump directly - has been played many times over the past few days.

Khizr Khan, who fled from the United Arab Emirates with his family when he was just a boy, was the surprise standout at last week's DNC, delivering a highly emotional speech about his son, Humayun Khan, a USA soldier who at 27 years of age was killed in 2004 by a auto bomb. "Let me ask you: Have you even read the US Constitution?". In doing so, they earned the scorn of Trump himself, he had sacrificed just as much as the Khans - despite not serving in war nor losing a child on the battlefield. Khizr chastised Trump in his speech, saying that under Trump's proposed Muslim ban, their son, Capt. Humayun Khan, who died in 2004 in Iraq, would not have been able to serve. His tweet followed a late Saturday night statement where Trump described Humayun Khan as "a hero", but said his father had "no right" to "say many other inaccurate things".

"Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention", Khan Ghazala wrote in an op-ed published by The Washington Post. Leading Republicans including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued statements in support of the family. But none of the Republicans who have repudiated Trump's statements have revoked their support of Trump's campaign - including McCain. But neither statement mentioned Trump by name or repudiated him. Ghazala Khan said that being on stage was very hard "because I can not see my son's picture, I can not even come in the room where his pictures are".

At a time when Republicans and Democrats have difficulty agreeing on essentially anything, there is bipartisan condemnation of Donald Trump's response to a stirring speech delivered at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week.

"Donald Trump said I had nothing to say. I do".

The Republican presidential nominee plans to hold a rally in Green Bay on Friday, his first Wisconsin stop since the state's April primary.

"There was no need to comment the way he commented", Khan said on Monday.

McCain, a leading voice in the party on military issues, on Monday condemned Trump for disparaging a fallen soldier's parents, saying in a statement his remarks do not represent the views of "our Republican Party". It's the values [of this country] that brought us here, not our religion.

Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte, from New Hampshire, also harshly rebuked Trump. While Walker has endorsed Trump, they have not appeared on the same stage together since the Republican presidential debates a year ago when they were running against one another in the GOP primary. "We want to maintain our dignity", even as the couple kept up a round of TV appearances.

"I don't care what they say".

Vietnam veteran McCain put out a statement defending the Khans - who challenged Donald Trump to "read the USA constitution" in a speech at the Democratic convention - and urged the Republican nominee to "set the example for what our country can and should represent".

By suspending immigration from countries that have been compromised by terrorism, rebuilding our military, defeating ISIS at its source and projecting strength on the global stage, we will reduce the likelihood that other American families will face the enduring heartbreak of the Khan family.
