The Clinton campaign released a powerful ad on Friday featuring Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father whose speech at the Democratic National Convention in July became the defining moment of the convention—and prompted Donald Trump to smear him and his wife, Ghazala Khan.
The new ad features Khan in his home, recounting how his son lost his life as a soldier in Iraq by sacrificing himself to save the rest of his unit from a suicide bomber. “My son was Captain Humayun Khan, he was 27 years old, and he was a Muslim American,” Khan says at the end of the ad. Then, fighting back tears, he continues, “I want to ask Mr. Trump, would my son have a place in your America?”
The one-minute ad will run in Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
