Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–August 4, 2016. Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate from Illinois and Iraq War Veteran Tammy Duckworth released the following statement this week regarding Donald Trump’s continued attacks on the family of Captain Humayun Khan, a Muslim American Army officer who was killed in action in Iraq in 2004.
“We already knew that Donald Trump was intolerant and unfit to be Commander in Chief. With his despicable attacks on a Gold Star family, we now know he is a cruel and cowardly man, as well. My heart breaks for the Khan family. Their service and sacrifice are more than most Americans will know, and for that, they should receive nothing but our gratitude. They certainly have mine.” — Tammy Duckworth
