PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The father of an Army captain — a Muslim-American killed in Iraq — has lead a strong condemnation of Donald Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States.

Khizr Khan is a Muslim who came to the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates. He’s accusing Trump of smearing the character of Muslims and other groups.

“Let me ask you, have you ever read the United State Constitution?” Khan said in his speech at the Democratic convention as he directed his words at the GOP presidential nominee.

Khan then said: “I will gladly lend you my copy.”

Khan says his late son wouldn’t have been allowed in the country if Trump’s ban was in place.

    Except Trump din’t say he would ban Muslims from entering the U.S
    Trump said he would stop the illegals from entering and halt the Muslim “refugees” from entering UNTIL ” we” figure out a way to vet them and a system of security to keep terrorists out.

    Im not even a trump fan and I know that. If you can’t even lie good don’t bother wasting out time.

      The Democrats will distort anything Trump says, hoping that the brain dead liberals will take it as Gospel, and not take the time, or are too damn lazy to find out what he actually said. Routine tactic of Democrats these days.

      In case you forget what he said and he did not say refugee or illegal or alien he proposes a blanked ban on all muslims. “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on,” a campaign press release said.

      Don’t fool yourselves remember

      First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Socialist.

      Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

      Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
      Because I was not a Jew.

      Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me
