Former US President Trump has a history of making the most outrageous statements about Muslims. Meanwhile, in 2016, Khan accused Trump of vilifying American Muslims while “sacrificing nothing” himself. He spoke in a steely rebuke that electrified the Democratic convention.

Khan’s son Humayun had died in a 2004 suicide bombing in Baquba. Moreover, he admonished the Republican presidential nominee for his plan to ban Muslims from entering the US. Humayun’s mother also gave a befitting reply to Trump in the event.

“Tonight we are honored to stand here as parents of Captain Humayun Khan and as patriotic American Muslims with undivided loyalty to the country,” he had said.

“If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would have been in America,” he said. “Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims.”

Meanwhile, he added, “Donald Trump, you are asking Americans to trust you with their future, let me ask you – have you even read the United States Constitution?”

Moreover, Khan said, “I will gladly lend you my copy!” Besides, he demanded Trump look for the word “liberty” and consult the 14th amendment.

“Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery?” he demanded, as many in the audience were moved to tears. “Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders, and ethnicities.”

“You have sacrificed nothing, and no one!” he said.
