The way Donald Trump and the Republicans treated this family still makes my blood boil. Such a disregard for the servicemen and women of this country and the real sacrifices they and their families make for the rest of us. Shameful, truly shameful.

In his new book, "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us," Trump Jr. wrote about a trip he and his family made to the Arlington National Cemetery before his father's inauguration in 2017.

Khizr Khan , whose son died in 2004, says Trump should go to Arlington Cemetery and see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. PHILADELPHIA — The Muslim-immigrant father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq War lashed out at Donald Trump , saying: "You have sacrificed nothing and no one" for the U.S. Holding a Constitution while speaking on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Khizr Khan told the audience that "Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims."

"In that moment, I also thought of all the attacks we'd already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we'd have to make to help my father succeed - voluntarily giving up a huge chunk of our business and all international deals to avoid the appearance that we were 'profiting off the office,'" Trump Jr. wrote.

In an interview with MSNBC's Kendis Gibson on Sunday, Khan, whose son Capt. Humayun Khan was buried at the cemetery in Arlington, is pressed for his thoughts on the comments Trump Jr. made in his new book.

In response, Khan, who rose to prominence after an impassioned speech he gave blasting then-presidential candidate Trump at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, said: "I say only one thing, that it's all about business with Donald trump and his family."

'Beautiful boys': Victims in Mexico ambush remembered at funerals

  'Beautiful boys': Victims in Mexico ambush remembered at funerals Families gathered in Mexico to remember the three mothers and six children killed in an ambush earlier this week near the Sonora-Chihuahua border.In the first of two funerals, family members and friends of Dawna Langford, 43, and her two children, Trevor Langford, 11, and Rogan Langford, 2, honored their memory during an emotional service in the close-knit community of La Mora. Hundreds of people from the U.S. and Mexico showed up, packing row after row of seats set up in Langford’s front yard.

Khizr Khan , father of fallen U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan , holds up a copy of the Constitution as his wife listens at the Democratic convention. The war of words between Donald Trump and the family of a slain Muslim-American soldier continued over the weekend, with the Republican nominee suggesting the mother did not speak on stage at last week’s Democratic National Convention because she was not “allowed” to, Ghazala Khan responding that she was in too much “pain” over the loss of her son to do so, and the father, Khizr Khan , calling Trump an ignorant, soulless candidate.

Here is the full transcript of the speech by Khizr Khan , father of Humayun Khan , who died in Iraq in 2004 after instructing his troops to seek cover before a car bomb exploded: Tonight we are honoured to stand here as parents of Captain Humayun Khan and as patriotic American Muslims - with Like many immigrants, we came to this country empty-handed. We believed in American democracy; that with hard work and goodness of this country, we could share in and contribute to its blessings. We are blessed to raise our three sons in a nation where they were free to be themselves and follow their dreams.

"They have no idea what service and sacrifice is when his turn, meaning Donald trump's turn, came to serve , he ran away," Khan continued, adding that Trump's family has "no idea what it takes to be" honorable.

"What does it say to you when somebody says that they've visited and seen those graves there at Arlington and then talks about their business sacrifice?" Gibson asked Khan. "Especially for you, who has a son that's buried there?"

"It's disgusting," Khan continued. "It's shameful, but we don't expect any better from Donald Trump or Donald Trump Jr. because they have sacrificed nothing. They have gained from all of this, holding the office, the highest office that they have corrupted and history is being written.

"And I say this to those who stand beside, stand as [an] enabler of Donald Trump, that history is being written," Khan continued, while also adding: "You could be on the side of this demagogue in the White House or on the side of [the] Constitution."

Khan gained national attention after his speech denouncing Trump at the Democratic National Convention in 2016. At the time, Trump, who was the then-GOP nominee, feuded publicly with Khan, who had attacked him over his stance on immigration.
