Trump’s Memorial Day Speech To Gold Star Families Included No Apology For The Khans

In an interview with ABC News George Stephanopoulos two days after the Khans speech, Trump played to Muslim stereotypes when he implied Ghazala had not spoken at the DNC because, as a Muslim woman, she wasnt allowed to have anything to say. He also characterized his personal business ventures as a sacrifice equal to that made by Gold Star families.

As criticism against his comments continued to mount in the days that followed Trumps ABC interview, the then-GOP nominee repeatedly defended himself by claiming the Khans had viciously attacked him. On Aug. 1, Trump appeared to be trying to tie Khizr Khan to radical Islamic terrorism in a tweet published to his official account. This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the US Get smart! Trump tweeted.
