ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Khirz Kahn, the father of a decorated American soldier killed in Iraq, took to the campaign trail for the first time to stump for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Speaking to supporters in Norfolk, Virginia, Khan criticized Republican nominee Donald Trump saying, "Time after time this candidate has proven to be unfit, unworthy of this office." Khan came to prominence at the Democratic National Convention in July showcasing his son's military service and criticizing Trump's campaign call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country. Trump responded at the time by questioning whether Khan's wife, Ghazala Khan, was not "allowed" to speak when she appeared next to her husband on the stage, an insinuation of some conservative form of Islam that embroiled the candidate in an unpopular dispute with the Muslim parents of a fallen war hero.
