Anthony Johnson reports from Yonkers
truly: I 've read Trump's words that were in response to Mr. Khan's speech and nowhere do I find any insult hurled at the Khans. Trump, in fact, said he thought Mr. Khan was a nice man. He merely made the observation that Mrs. Khan did not speak, and remained silent, which was true. How do you construe that as an insult? One has to remember that at the time the Khans immigrated to the U.S., the threat of terrorism against the West was minimal - except for a few highjackings by Palestinians, etc.. Over the past two decades, the world has changed dramatically as extremists have infiltrated Western societies to wreak havoc on a scale not seen previously. Trump's proposal to vet and suspend immigration from a region that are hotbeds of terrorist activity is a sound one. It is not prejudice - it is merely action to safeguard innocent Americans, families and bystanders, from becoming victims of random and mindless violence. As such, it is wrong to say, as Clinton and Kaine have suggested, that Trump lacks empathy with the Khans. Such accusation merely reflects the desperation of the Democrats and their willingness to smear Trump at the slightest opportunity to do so, including twisting every utterance of Trump to suit their agenda.
