Illinois Valley congressman speaks out against Trump comments

Posted by wlpo on August 1, 2016

As you may expect, Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger isn’t a fan of Donald Trump’s latest comments about a Muslim family who lost their son while serving in Iraq.

The Air National Guard pilot says “no one can truly understand the sacrifice a family makes when their loved one serves their country of the heartbreak of losing a loved one.” He goes on to say “comments disparaging our service men and women, and their families, are deeply disturbing and wholly unpatriotic.”

Trump caused outrage by questioning if a Gold Star mother of a fallen soldier wasn’t allowed to speak while her husband did at the Democratic National Convention.
