Slain US soldier serving his country , Parents mocked by Donald J Trump ,It's just Wrong Wrong Wrong !

Something's going on, it's not good were the words to come out from Trumps mouth, speaking about the presence of a slain US soldiers parents attendance at the annual Democratic convention last Thursday .

The parents of the purple heart and bronze star decorated serviceman, were mocked by Trump for their appearance at the Democratic convention. The US soldier who died in the call of duty in Iraq. Captain Humayun Khan was killed by a car bomb in 2004 at the age of 27.

The row has continued escalating since Thursday has called many to questioning not only Trumps republican candidacy but his legitimacy in the presidential race.

In the ABC interview broadcast on Sunday [below ], a transcript of which was released by the Trump campaign, Mr Trump was asked what sacrifices he had made.

"I work very, very hard. I've created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures," he said.

"...I've had tremendous success. I think I've done a lot."

The remarks prompted ridicule on Twitter under the hashtag #TrumpSacrifices, with users listing such hardships as flying commercial class and playing on a municipal golf course.

The parents of a US Muslim serviceman who his life in Iraq have hit back at Republican presidential Candidate.

Ghazala Khan stood silently next to her husband as he attacked Mr Trump for wanting to ban Muslims from the US, in an emotional speech to the convention on Thursday.

Khizr Khan, a U.S. citizen of Pakistani origin and a Muslim, won widespread praise when he spoke Thursday at the Democratic National Convention, telling the story of his son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed by a bomb in Iraq in 2004.
Humayun Khan knew he was walking toward danger. He must have known.

The 27-year-old Army Captain had ordered those around him to take cover as soon as he saw a taxi barrel through the gates of his base in Baquba, Iraq. He took 10 steps toward it when it exploded.

Khan isn't the only Muslim-American to give his life in the service of his country. But in this rancorous political climate, where Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is calling for a ban on Muslims, his story has taken on a different sort of significance.

And when his parents strode on to the stage at the DNC, their grief still writ large on their faces 12 years later, it was a meeting of identities as potent as the symbol on the army captain's military grave.

It signaled that patriotism and Islam are not mutually exclusive, that sacrifice and grief have no religion, and that the similarities that the Khans share with so many American families are far more meaningful than their differences.

Mr Trump mocked Captain khans mother, saying she had nothing to say. She said she was overcome with grief.

Clinton at a campaign rally Saturday night in Youngstown, Ohio, said the Khans specifically and Muslims generally are the most recent recipients of Trump's insults, and referenced his past statements about immigrants and the disabled.

"It’s a long list my friends. I don’t know, maybe he doesn’t have anything positive to say," Clinton said.
