What 7 Military Moms Really Think About Donald Trump's Attack on War Hero's Family

Khizr and Ghazala Khan took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to honor their son, US Army Captain Humayun Khan, a solider who died protecting his fellow soldiers in Iraq. After delivering a poignant and passionate speech that voiced their views on Donald Trump’s immigration stance, the Gold Star parents have come under fire from none other than the presidential candidate himself. Trump has since made stereotypical and disparaging remarks about their religion -- and he’s even dared to compare his sacrifices in business to the sacrifices the Khan family made when sending Humayun off to war and never seeing him again.
