Donald Trump has said and done some awful and unthinkable things since starting his Republican presidential campaign. But when he attacked the family of a deceased soldier, a soldier who gave his life to protect this nation, Trump might have crossed the line that even some Republicans can’t forgive.
Realizing the latest hole Trump willfully and yes, ignorantly jumped into, Hillary Clinton helped in piling on the dirt on Trump’s political grave.
Speaking at Imani Temple, an African American Catholic church, Clinton said she “tremble before those who would scapegoat other Americans.”
“Mr. Khan paid the ultimate sacrifice in his family, didn’t he?” Clinton said, according to Politico.
“And what has he heard from Donald Trump? Nothing but insults and degrading comments about Muslims — a total misunderstanding of what made our country great, religious freedom, religious liberty. It’s enshrined in our Constitution, as Mr. Khan knows, because he’s actually read it.”
Clinton addressed Trump’s comments again later on Sunday during another campaign stop in Ohio.
“To launch an attack as he did on Captain Khan’s mother, a Gold Star mother, who stood there on that stage with her husband honoring the sacrifice of their son,” she told reporters, according to CBS News. “I don’t know where the bounds are. I don’t know where the bottom is.”
