Gold Star father Khizr Khan is back on the national stage. This time he is challenging Democrats to derail President Donald Trump.
Khan is asking Democrats to stall, filibuster, and block President Trump’s agenda at every turn. Specifically, Khan wants Democrats to find a way to block the enforcement of Trump’s executive order restricting travel from seven predominately Muslim countries.
Kahn is the father of an American soldier who was killed in action. He rose to national prominence at 2016’s Democratic National Convention when he famously took on Trump for proposing a Muslim ban early that year. Throughout the rest of the 2016 presidential campaign, Kahn remained a vocal surrogate for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign.
Kahn did not pull any punches during his recent speech on Trump, “We will not be withdrawing. We will not be pushed back. We will remain standing. This country is with us.”
“If it doesn’t stop here, the world is waiting to join us. We will boycott everything, and anything Trump, if this continues. Because of his malice toward Muslims, [Trump] has endangered their lives. He has alienated patriotic Americans in the United States,” Kahn said in his trademark fiery voice.
A vocal faction of the Democratic party has emerged, lead by people like Kahn. In the aftermath of Trump’s executive order on Friday, Democrats are rushing to respond to their demands. Whether Kahn and his allies can find mainstream traction, remains an open question.
