Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt is the latest member of Congress to speak about the treatment of a fallen soldier’s parents by his party’s presidential nominee.
Blunt weighed in Monday while in Columbia concerning statements made by Republican Donald Trump about the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan.
“I remember how much I worried about my son Matt during his years of active duty. The Khans have made the greatest possible sacrifice for our country; they deserve to be heard and respected,” Blunt said in a statement.
Blunt, who is seeking re-election this year, added, “My advice to Donald Trump has been and will continue to be to focus on jobs and national security and stop responding to every criticism whether it’s from a grieving family or Hillary Clinton.”
