Trump lashes out at parents of Muslim war hero: ‘I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices’

Published

on

In his first interview since Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton gave her acceptance speech on Thursday night, Republican nominee Donald Trump took exception to remarks made by Khizr Khan, the father of a fallen Muslim captain in the U.S. Army.

On ABC News, Trump told host George Stephanopoulos that Khan was wrong to say that he has “sacrificed nothing” for his country, then went on to insinuate the Khan’s wife is forbidden to speak because of the family’s Muslim faith.

“I saw him, I saw him,” Trump said Saturday. “He was, you know, very emotional.”

He went on, “If you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me.”

When pressed to name sacrifices he’s made in life, Trump said, “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.”

He pointed to his charitable contribution of “millions” of dollars to veterans, although those claims do not hold up under scrutiny. Veterans groups have said of the former reality TV star, “His mouth writes checks no one can cash.”

During the call, the leader of the free world whined about Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman.

"The Pulitzer Prize is worthless as far as I'm concerned," Trump said of the coveted award. "Because, when you have the Maggie Habermans getting a Pulitzer Prize and she got it all wrong."
