"Who wrote that? Did Hillary's script writers write it?" Trump said in an interview with with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos. "I think I've made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard."
His suggestion that Ghazala Khan had been silenced due to her husband’s presumed Muslim male misogyny has been received as particularly distasteful, and factually inaccurate.
Trump has explained he was merely firing back at the Khans for attacking him, when he had nothing to do with the war in the Middle East and unlike Hillary Clinton, has been against it all along.
