Nevada GOP candidates react to Trump feud with vet's family

Posted August 07, 2016

This goes beyond politics.

NBC News reported, "Key Republicans close to Donald Trump's orbit are plotting an intervention with the candidate after a disastrous 48 hours led some influential voices in the party to question whether Trump can stay at the top of the Republican ticket".

Republican leaders' frustration with Donald Trump mounted Wednesday following a series of startling statements from the GOP nominee, including his refusal to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan's re-election.

In better news for Trump, his campaign and the RNC jointly raised $80 million for his White House bid in July, the campaign said on Wednesday. But the businessman can quickly be drawn back in by an interview, especially if he believes he's already answered the question, or if he grows irritated by commentary on cable television.

Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa said Trump's comments "are not in line with my own beliefs about how the members of the military and their families should be treated".

"By suspending immigration from countries that have been compromised by terrorism, rebuilding our military, defeating ISIS at its source and projecting strength on the global stage, we will reduce the likelihood that other American families will face the enduring heartbreak of the Khan family", Pence said in the statement.

The families of 11 service members who died fighting for the U.S. demanded an apology from Donald Trump on Monday, accusing him of "cheapening the sacrifice made by those we lost". "It's a very deeply held habit".

His guards exchanged fire with the gunmen and forced them to flee, it said, adding that one of the guards was lightly wounded. One of his bodyguards sustained minor injuries during the attack, while the attackers escaped the scene.

Noting he'd sat and grieved with families of troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama said he's specifically asked for a Gold Star mother - Sharon Belkofer - to introduce him ahead of his remarks at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week.

Priebus and the Trump confidants, as well as numerous GOP lawmakers, have been particularly irked by the candidate's repeated criticism of an American Muslim family whose son, a U.S. Army captain, was killed in Iraq.

However, events in recent days suggest otherwise. Khizr Khan, with his wife, Ghazala, standing by his side, cited the sacrifice of their son, who was killed by a vehicle bomb in 2004, and criticized Trump's proposal to combat terrorism by temporarily banning Muslims from entering the United States.

However, Khizr Khan has previously disavowed the religious law.

Trump's unwillingness to let the matter subside sparked outrage Monday from a chorus of Republicans.

Trump also unleashed a new attack on Clinton, saying that in supporting her, Sen. Rep. Mike Coffman, a vulnerable Republican in a competitive Colorado district, said he was "deeply offended when Donald Trump fails to honor the sacrifices of all of our fearless soldiers who were lost in that war".

In the speech, Khan criticized Trump's policies and statements about Muslims.

Officers illegally arrested Gray and didn't put him in a seat belt to punish him for making a scene as he was being detained. The Maryland prosecutor set up a press conference where she spoke more on what drove her to make the decision.

Ryan brushed off Trump's stance, telling a radio interviewer in Green Bay, Wisconsin, that the only endorsement he cares about is from voters in his congressional district. He added that Trump had great respect for veterans. "If I were president, his son wouldn't have died, because I wouldn't have been in the war, if I was president back then".

"I would say in the last couple of weeks, he has been remarkably underperforming and we'll see whether or not he can take a deep breath and learn these lessons", said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox Business News.

"I think that's probably right", he acknowledged. "They knew he'd respond".

Democrats have been quick to seize on the comments as evidence Trump is ill suited to be commander in chief.

Fleischer still supports Trump over Clinton.

The media campaign was all the more extraordinary because there has not been the slightest hint from Trump or his top aides that he was considering withdrawal.
