Gold Star Father Khizr Khan Blasts Trump For His Reported Comments About Dead Soldiers: “His Soul Is That Of A Coward”

Donald Trump has once again found himself at the epicenter of nationwide backlash after a bombshell report from The Atlantic revealed that Trump allegedly called fallen United States soldiers “losers” and “suckers” and made extremely disparaging remarks about the late Senator John McCain who he’s long held a ridiculous and unwarranted level of disdain for.

Of course, Trump and his people were quick to jump on the story and vehemently deny the allegations while criticizing The Atlantic the same way they do any other media outlet that dares to publish something unsavory about him.

But the fact of the matter is, people are done.

They’re done with Trump’s lying. They’re done with his disrespect. And they’re done with his excuses.

And they’re raising their voices.

Humayun Saqib Muazzam Khan was a United States Army officer who was killed in a suicide bombing during the Iraq War.

He rose to posthumous fame during the 2016 election season as an example of a Muslim-American soldier that sacrificed his life for this country — during a time when Trump was peddling travel bans for brown people.

And now that even more light has been shed on the disrespect with which Trump treats our military service members, Khan’s father is raising his own voice once again.

On a segment with MSNBC the Gold Star father,  Khizr Muazzam Khan, shared his thoughts on the report alleging that the president had called members of the military who lost their lives in service “losers” and “suckers.”

“Testament the selfishness,” Khan stated, speaking of Trump. “He celebrates autocrats and dictators, his benefactors and Russia.”

“Donald Trump told us who he is,” Khan continued in his fiery deliverance. “He is incapable of understanding service, valor, and courage. His soul cannot conceive of integrity and honor.”

And let me say it loudly… His soul is that of a coward,” Khan blistered. “He is not deserving of the office of President of the United States or commander-in-chief of our brave men and women serving in uniform.”

You catch that, Trump? We’re DONE.
