Khizr Khan and Hillary Clinton on Sunday in Manchester, N.H. The campaign has used Khan sparingly but effectively.

WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton campaigned with one of the most effective messengers her campaign has employed since the convention Sunday night in New Hampshire, Khizr Khan, whose son was killed while serving in Iraq in 2004.

Khan has had an uncanny ability to get under the skin of the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.

During his address, Khan repeatedly referenced the “attack” his family suffered from Trump after his speech at the Democratic National Convention. During that speech, Khan pulled a pocket-sized copy of the constitution and challenged Trump to read it.

On Sunday, Khan had a few more “questions” for the billionaire real estate mogul.

“Would my son, Captain Humayun Khan have a place in your America? Would Muslims have a place in your America? Would Latinos have a place in your America? Would African Americans have a place in your America, Donald Trump? Would anyone who isn’t like you have a place in your America? Well thankfully, Mr. Trump, this isn’t your America,” he said.

He talked about the outpouring of support he and his wife, Ghazala Khan, had received after Trump took aim at them, the nominee suggested Khan’s wife did not speak at the convention because she was not “allowed” to.

Khan lauded Clinton as “the strongest, most qualified representator of the fundamental values which have made this country the symbol of hope and dignity for all through out the world.”

He took the stage alongside the Democratic nominee at the rally in Manchester, N.H., she sat behind him as he delivered his remarks, Khan did the same once Clinton began speaking to the crowd.

“We have to begin listening to one another and respecting one another,” Clinton said. “This election is a moment of reckoning. It is a choice between division and unity. Between strong, steady leadership or a loose cannon, who could put everything else at risk.”
