At the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Khizr Khan held a copy of the constitution and spoke out against then-candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. Trump criticized Khan soon after. Khan is a U.S. citizen and Gold Star father: His son, Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq by a suicide bomb attack. Khan joins us in-studio to discuss how his altercation with Trump catapulted him to fame, and his new memoir “An American Family.”
