Dad of slain Muslim soldier challenges Trump

Khizr Khan addresses delegates on the fourth and final day of the Democratic National Convention at Wells Fargo Center on July 28, 2016 in Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaThe father of a Muslim US soldier killed in Iraq accused Donald Trump of vilifying patriotic American Muslims while “sacrificing nothing” himself, in a steely rebuke that electrified the Democratic convention. Khizr Khan — whose son Humayun died in a 2004 suicide bombing in Baquba — admonished the Republican presidential nominee for his plan to ban Muslims from entering the United States. “Tonight we are honored to stand here as parents of Captain Humayun Khan and as patriotic American Muslims with undivided loyalty to the country,” he said, stirring delegates who had watched a video tribute to his son in captivated silence.
