Humayun Khan’s parents, who appeared at the Democratic convention and have criticized Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric. Their son was killed in Iraq. In a statement, Pence said he and Trump believe Khan is “an American hero” and said “his family, like all Gold Star families, should be cherished by every American.” He then shifted gears to praise Trump, who he said will “support our military and their families” and “defeat the enemies of our freedom.” He backed up those remarks at a Monday evening town hall meeting in Nevada, when the audience jeered a woman who asked how he can tolerate what she called Trump’s disrespect of American servicemen. Pence asked the crowd to quiet down and then said of the questioner: “That’s what freedom looks like. That’s what freedom sounds like.” Trump, meanwhile, wrote on Twitter that day: “Mr. http://cameronlonginfo.universitypunjabi.org/2016/08/04/background-advice-on-deciding-upon-factors-for-career/Khan, who does not know me, viciously attacked me from the stage of the DNC and is now all over TV doing the same… Nice!” On Tuesday, Pence held a meeting with Arizona Sen. John McCain a day after the former prisoner of war said Trump did not have “unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us,” and hours after Trump responded by telling The Washington Post he would not endorse McCain’s re-election. In that same interview, Trump also declined to endorse Ryan, who faces a primary election next week.
