Trump Meets With Gold Star Families Amid Khan Controversy

In an interview with the Times, Trump said a doctor gave him a "very strong letter" at the time confirming his condition, but he'd have to search for a copy of it. "If I become President, I will make America safe again".

It is time for Donald Trump to set the example for our country and the future of the Republican Party.

Attached to the email was a document listing talking points and quotes from Trump about the Khan family.

"You've got a son in the military, how do you tolerate this disrespect?" she asked Pence, referring to his son Michael, a Second Lieutenant in the Marines.

Vaughn organized the meeting between Trump and the families, and said that the Khans were not a topic of discussion.

In directly taking on Trump, however, McCain goes much further than House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Gold Star families are those that have lost a close relative in military service.

During an interview with a local television station in OH on Monday, Donald Trump doubled down on his comments about Khizr Khan, arguing that Khan-the father of slain Army captain Humayun Khan-spoke so passionately against Trump because he's "bothered" by Trump's immigration plan. "Trump you are a disgrace!"

Trump said the father had no right to attack him and questioned of the campaign of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton wrote the speech. Trump also asserted that the Republican Party had changed the delegate allocation in the Florida primary to favor a native candidate, like Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio, at Trump's expense.

He continued: "Capt. Khan is an American hero".

Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. I have a long and well-known public and private record for which I will have to answer at the Final Judgment, and I repose my hope in the promise of mercy and the moderation of age.

Ghazala's response helped launch the #CanYouHearUsNow campaign, which urges Muslim-American women to speak out about who they are and what their faith represents.

Trump responded in an interview with ABC's "This Week", saying: "She had nothing to say". Still, the former secretary of state received 3.7 million more votes than Sanders nationwide and had established a clear lead in delegates by March 1. Okay? It is. Let me say first I want to honor your son's service to the country and your family's service to the country, I truly do.

The New York Times reports that an internal Trump campaign memo instructs his proxies to "express gratitude for the Khans' sacrifice" but adds that Trump has a "right to defend himself". "She believes in free speech and vigorous open debate".

In fact, Ghazala Khan says she was too distraught to speak about her killed son. Khan's son, the late Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed by suicide bombers 12 years ago.

Clinton's policy, he said, "crippled Libya and Syria and Iraq".
