He was 27 years old, and he was a Muslim-American.
The thirty-second spot, titled "Captain Khan", recounts the story of Captain Humayun Khan and indirectly criticizes Donald Trump for his proposal to ban all Muslim immigrants. During his RNC speech, Khan held up a copy of the Constitution and asked Trump if he had ever read it before, saying, "You have sacrificed nothing".
Throughout the general election, the Khan family had been one of the Clinton campaign's most compelling and effective arguments against Trump, causing more damage to Trump's presidential campaign than perhaps nearly any other entity.
Earlier in the election, Trump and Khan entered into a major feud after Khan condemned Trump's anti-muslim rhetoric. She later explained that she did not speak because she was still moved to tears at the thought of her son.
Brad Pitt meets with Maddox
At the time of TMZ's report, Bustle reached out to reps for Pitt and Jolie for comment, but did not receive a response. According to the website, the family therapist "felt the timing wasn't right" for a reunion between Brad and Maddox .
Khan's ad was released on Friday morning, and though it is paid for by the Clinton campaign, Mr. Khan's pain and his son's story is the only thing being shared.
Trump has pushed back on those accusations.
The minute-long ad is a testimonial about the death of Khan's son, Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed while serving in Iraq.
What cemented Khan's place in 2016 political history, though, was the way Trump responded to the speech, telling ABC the following Sunday, "If you look at his wife, she was standing there". Khan's son was a Muslim-American soldier who died on duty in Iraq. The Gold Star father of a decorated late soldier gave a speech that, according to one New York Times writer, "electrified the convention and turned Mr. Khan into a social media and cable news sensation". She probably - maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. But Trump doubled down on the comments and tweeted later that Khan "viciously attacked me from the stage of the DNC and is now all over T.V. doing the same - Nice!"
