The controversy continues over what Republican Donald Trump has been saying about Khizr and Ghazala Khan, Muslim parents of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.
FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:
Trump has suggested Mrs. Kahn was kept quiet as her husband spoke about their dead Army officer son at the DNC. She says she was just grief-stricken.
Trump tweeted that Mr. Kahn is viciously attacking him, and that this story is about fighting radical Islamic terror, something Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has also said:
(Manafort) "Mr. Trump has said we're going to do it differently. And that's what we should be talking about, not Mr. Kahn and his tragedy."
Senator John McCain, who was a POW, says Trump has disparaged a fallen soldier's parents and that his views do not represent the Republican party.

Captain Khan, killed 12 years ago, was a hero, but this is about RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR and the weakness of our "leaders" to eradicate it!
