Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is on the defense... this time, against criticism from the father of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq who said Trump had "sacrificed nothing and no one." (SOUNDBITE) (English) KHIZR KHAN, SAYING: "Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery? ...You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one." That was Khizr Khan at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday. In response, Donald Trump told ABC News - quote - "I think I've made a lot of sacrifices" and "I work very, very hard." Khan had also attacked Trump for proposing a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. (SOUNDBITE) (English) KHIZR KHAN, SAYING: "Let me ask you, have you ever read the United States constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy." Trump questioned if Hillary Clinton's script writers wrote that speech, which won widespread praise among Democrats. Khan has defended his speech as just "heart-to-heart." The GOP nominee also questioned whether the mother was allowed to speak at all. Clinton at a campaign rally Saturday night in Ohio, said the Khans specifically and Muslims generally are the most recent recipients of Trump's insults. And she says, that's a long list.
