New Clinton ad: Khizr Khan engages Donald Trump
Hillary for America is airing a powerful testimonial ad from Khizr Khan, a Virginia Gold Star father, who recounts the story of his son Captain Humayun Khan, who tragically lost his life in Iraq while saving every member of his unit. Captain Khan ordered his unit to back away from an oncoming suicide bomber while he moved towards it to protect and defend them.
On the debate stage Wednesday night, Clinton responded to questions about Trump’s recent attacks on women by outlining his long pattern of attacking a variety of Americans, including disabled Americans, veterans, Latinos, African-Americans and Muslim Americans like the Khan family.
The ad ends with Khizr saying, “I want to ask Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?”
Not only has Trump repeatedly attacked Muslim Americans in this campaign, he has also insulted our men and women in uniform by arguing he knows more than the generals and repeatedly denigrating our veterans and military families. Khizr Khan, joined by his wife Ghazala, delivered one of the most powerful speeches at the Democratic National Convention this summer and were subsequently attacked repeatedly by Donald Trump.
The ad will air as part of an already existing ad buy in the battleground states of Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
