Capt. Humayun Khan died from a suicide bombing in Iraq on June 8, 2004.

On Thursday, his father Khizr gave an impassioned speech at the Democratic National Convention. The elder Khan spoke movingly of his son:

Tonight, we are honored to stand here as the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan, and as patriotic American Muslims with undivided loyalty to our country.

Like many immigrants, we came to this country empty-handed. We believed in American democracy — that with hard work and the goodness of this country, we could share in and contribute to its blessings.

We were blessed to raise our three sons in a nation where they were free to be themselves and follow their dreams.

Our son, Humayun, had dreams of being a military lawyer. But he put those dreams aside the day he sacrificed his life to save his fellow soldiers.

He had a stinging message for Donald Trump:

Hillary Clinton was right when she called my son “the best of America.”

If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would have been in America.

Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.

And he had a heckuva offer for The Donald. Pulling a Constitutuion from his pocket, he offered to lend it to Trump.

It only got more fiery from there. Watch it below:
