Father Of Slain Muslim US Soldier Has A Question For Donald Trump

U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan was killed by a car bomb in Iraq. Donald Trump's Muslim ban would've kept him from entering the U.S. at all.

Humayun Khan was a U.S. Army captain who died serving his country. He was also a Muslim. And his father has a question for Donald Trump. 

"Have you even read the United States Constitution?" Khizr Khan asked Trump at the Democratic National Convention. "I will gladly lend you my copy. In this document, look for the words 'liberty' and 'equal protection of law.'"

Humayun Khan was born in the United Arab Emirates and was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

"Hillary Clinton was right when she called my son the best of America," Khizr Khan said. "If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would've been in America."
