Khizr Khan, the father of a U.S. Army veteran who lost his life in Iraq, and who created an uproar with his speech criticizing Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention, is now campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
The Clinton campaign has released a one-minute video ad featuring Khan giving tribute to his son, Captain Humayan Khan, who was killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq in 2004.
The video is designed to grab emotions, and is filled with patriotic images, with Khan clutching an American flag and asking, with a quiver in his voice, “Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?”
The Clinton campaign has stated they will be running the ad in battleground states including Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
What the ad doesn’t say is that Khan is an attorney specializing in assisting foreign investors to buy their way into the U.S. through a controversial visa program.
It has also been revealed that Khan has connections to Hillary Clinton, Saudi Arabia, Loretta Lynch and Islamic law. He is a supporter of Shariah law, and has written that all other laws “must always be subordinated to the Shariah.”
Additionally, Khan has written, “to Muslims, the Quran being the very word of God, it is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”
Khan has attacked Trump because he spoke out against the Muslim refugees pouring into the United States and expressed concern that there are terrorists coming in among them. Trump has called for a temporary ban on immigration from Muslim countries until a more extreme vetting system is in place.
Trump has pointed out that if he had been President at the time Khan’s son was in the military, he would likely still be alive today, as Trump stated he would not have approved the war in Iraq in the first place – and it was a war which Hillary Clinton herself voted for.
