Capt. Khan's Arlington Grave Attracts Visitors After Trump Feud

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.

Khzir Khan, the father of fallen soldier Humayun Kahn, spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July. In his speech, he also hit out at Trump for his proposed policy of banning the entry of Muslims into the country.

Trump tweeted in response that Khan "viciously attacked" him and suggested, to much criticism, that Khan's wife wasn't allowed to speak during the DNC address.

In an op-ed published in The Washington Post, the bereaved mother responded to Trump's statements, saying, "If he studied the real Islam and Koran, all the ideas he gets from terrorists would change, because terrorism is a different religion".

Thornberry is one of the few Texas Republicans to speak-out on this latest Trump controversy. "I can also tell you if you go to any national cemetery, especially Arlington, you're going to see crescent moons there". John McCain, a former prisoner of war, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars condemned Trump.

China to prepare for 'war at sea'
Foreigners who believe that Beijing has violated their rights are welcome to take their claims to Chinese courts, the ruling said. More than 300 fishing vessels left the port on Monday for fishing grounds in the South China Sea .

President Obama slams Republican nominee for president Donald Trump at a joint press conference with the prime minister of Singapore at the White House Tuesday morning. "You did not serve", Khan said. There has to be a point at which you say, this isn't somebody I can support to be president of the United States, even if he purports to be a member of my party. Still grieving, she said Trump has no empathy for sacrifices military families make.

"I mean, you see anybody who dies for their nation, dies for the three of us at this table, made the ultimate sacrifice, but you know for my father, in terms of the Kahn family, it's not about a soldier-who's an fantastic guy".

Lourey said she was "dismayed and horrified" about Trump's "lack of empathy" for a fellow Gold Star family, who are those who have lost loved ones in combat fighting for the U.S.

"I think what's been interesting is the repeated denunciations of his statements by leading Republicans, including the speaker of the House and the Senate majority leader and prominent Republicans like John McCain", he said. All three have said they would support Trump as the GOP presidential nominee.
