Doug Collins Reminded Trump 'Attacked' Gold Star Families After Democrats Soleimani Comment
Republican Rep. Doug Collins was reminded that President Donald Trump has been in spats with the families of troops killed in the line of duty after the congressman said Democrats mourned the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani "more than they mourn our Gold Star families."
Speaking to the Lou Dobbs Tonight show about Democrat criticism the Trump administration's decision to assassinate Soleimani in a drone strike near Baghdad International Airport on January 3, the GOP congressman said: "They're in love with terrorists. We see that they mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families, who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani. That's a problem."
President Trump famously attacked the family of Captain Humayun Khan during the 2016 presidential election campaign after his father, Khizr Khan, criticised the then-candidate's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States at the Democratic National Convention.
