Trump reacts to Muslim soldier father Khizr Khan's rebuke
US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has responded to criticism from the father of a Muslim US soldier killed in Iraq.
In an impassioned speech at last week's Democratic National Convention, Khizr Khan said Mr Trump had sacrificed "nothing and no-one" for his country.
Mr Trump said he had made "a lot of sacrifices" by creating jobs.
But he drew more controversy by mocking Mr Khan's wife, who had stood silently by her husband's side as he spoke.
"If you look at his wife, she was standing there," he said, in an interview with ABC's This Week. "She had nothing to say... Maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. You tell me."
Ghazala Khan said on Friday that she did not speak because she was still overcome with grief and could not look at her son's photos without crying.
Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine said Mr Trump's remarks were inappropriate.
"He was kind of trying to turn that into some kind of ridicule," he said, quoted by AP. "It just demonstrates again kind of a temperamental unfitness. If you don't have any more sense of empathy than that, then I'm not sure you can learn it."
