JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – The Latest on reaction by Alaska’s U.S. senators to comments by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump
Alaska U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says Gold Star families of service members killed in war deserve “unconditional love and support” for that sacrifice.
She says GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump “must honor and respect this most fundamental value.”
Murkowski was responding to recent comments by Trump, who has publicly feuded with Khizr and Ghazala Khan. The Khans are the parents of decorated Muslim Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
Khizr Khan spoke at last week’s Democratic National Convention.
Alaska’s other U.S. senator, Dan Sullivan, said he condemned any statement or action, including recent remarks by Trump, that undermines the sacrifice of Capt. Khan and his family, or any of our other fallen American soldiers.
