Washington – Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning to continue his criticisms of Khizr Khan (KY’-zer KAHN’), the father of a Muslim U.S. Army captain who was killed in 2004 by a suicide bomber in Iraq.
“I was viciously attacked by Mr. Khan at the Democratic Convention. Am I not allowed to respond? Hillary voted for the Iraq war, not me!” Trump tweeted.
The tweet came just minutes after interviews with Khan aired on NBC’s “Meet The Press” and CNN’s “State of the Union.” Khan thanked Trump for calling his son a hero, but said the Republican presidential nominee is being “disingenuous” because of his campaign rhetoric.
Khan gave an emotional tribute to his son last week the Democratic National Convention that was also heavily critical of Trump. Khan’s son, Humayun, earned a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.
