The bizarre week began with a Trump interview that aired Sunday on ABC. Trump started pushing back against Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim American soldier killed in Iraq. In a speech last week at the Democratic National Convention, Khan said that Trump had “sacrificed nothing and no one” and that his policies, such as a ban on Muslims entering the U.S., made him unfit to be president.
Trump did not back down from the criticism, arguing to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he had sacrificed through business success. He doubled down on his comments later in the day, arguing that Khan did not know him and “has no right” to question his knowledge of the Constitution.
The GOP candidate’s most provocative comment about Khan, however, came in a pair of jabs in which he questioned why Khan’s wife was silent during the DNC speech — implying that a strict adherence to Islam was to blame.
The Democrats and their accomplices in the news media want to smear Trump with the racist, xenophobic label. Trump who comes from New York has worked with a diverse set of people from all religions, races, national origins and political ideologies. I would bet that up until the time he decided to run for President he has never in his business career been called a racist. Trump has no real political ideology. He is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. He is a real estate developer and he views the world through art of deal making. Now that Trump is in politics, he must come to the realization that name calling is nothing personal against him. The only reason why the Democrats, with the help of the news media, label him racist, xenophobe, misogynist, etc is because they want him to lose the election.
