Khizr Khan, Humayun's father, criticized Trump at the Democratic convention, questioning whether Trump had read the Constitution and charging that the NY real-estate developer had sacrificed little. He also said Trump has not sacrificed for his country.
Trump also said he was not supporting Sen.
Obama's reference to last week was during his speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where Hillary Clinton, Obama's former secretary of state, was nominated to be the Democratic nominee.
Khan's parents addressed Donald Trump at the DNC. She later explained that she was too emotional seeing a photo of her son.
In the closely watched 10th Congressional District in Northern Virginia, incumbent Barbara Comstock was one of the first state Republicans to comment on the Khan controversy by praising the fallen soldier's service.
TRUMP: No, I'm not talking about the Khans. George corrected Trump and told him that Putin is already in Ukraine. "I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers, or candidates". John McCain, R-Ariz., the Veterans of Foreign Wars and others.
"By the time we got out it was, I guess - for the most part I wouldn't have had to go, but I got college deferments, I had one medical deferment for feet", Trump said. Captain Khan was a true American hero. I don't know for whom, or if, I will vote, but it will not be for Trump.
Boozman's Democratic opponent, Conner Eldridge, said, "What Trump has said is once again offensive and hateful and totally off base and wrong in every way".
Immediately after displaying his rank meanness, Trump displayed his basic ignorance on one of the issues he talks about most - Russian Federation.
"The same standard applies", he said.
Donald Trump's verbal atrocities have struck public nerves before, but so far the discomforts have faded with weird haste. John McCain and Mitt Romney - but never an outright sense they were unfit to serve.
Boozman reiterated his support for Trump, saying, "I support our nominee". So he dared Trump to join him at an event where they could both take questions on their taxes. There's so much at stake in this election.
On top of all that - and that's a lot - we have Trump defending himself from the Khans by equating his sacrifices in life to theirs; equating the sacrifice he made in expanding his inherited fortune into a greater fortune to the sacrifice of a soldier's life. "I disagree with her on several important issues".
Gillespie said he and his wife "are praying for Dr. and Mrs. Khan today in sorrow and appreciation for their sacrifice, and thanking God that we live in a country that produces men like their son".
Boozman is cosponsoring a bill, the Keeping Our Commitment to Ending Veteran Homelessness Act, that would reauthorize seven veterans' homeless programs set to expire September 30.
While Obama has always been critical of Trump, his blistering condemnation Tuesday was a notable escalation of his involvement in the presidential race. Why do you think you're being targeted? She has a shot at putting this race away, but this answer on emails and interpreting Comey is the explanation for why she can't totally shake Trump. Some have said they won't vote for him.
The chief executive of the Democratic National Committee has resigned in the wake of an email hack that embarrassed the party on the eve of its convention.
