“Let me ask you: Have you even read the United States Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy," Khan said.
Trump, never one to shy away from his critics, responded to Khan’s speech in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.

While Trump said Khan looked like a “nice guy,” he questioned why Khan's wife didn’t say anything.
“His wife … if you look at his wife, she was standing there," Trump said. "She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me. But a plenty of people have written that. She was extremely quiet, and it looked like she had nothing to say. A lot of people have said that.”
He also responded to Khan’s assertion that Trump hadn’t sacrificed anything for his country.
“I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices,” Trump continued. “I’ve worked very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs.”
When Stephanopoulos questioned if he actually considered those sacrifices, Trump replied: “Sure. I think they’re sacrifices, I think when I can employ thousands and thousands of people, take care of their education, take care of so many things. Even the military. I mean, I was very responsible along with a group of people for getting the Vietnam Memorial built in downtown Manhattan, which to this day people thank me for.”
Soon after, Twitter erupted with the hashtag #TrumpSacrifices as critics joked about things Trump may have had to give up over the years.
