Trump Meets with Six Gold Star Families about National Security

Republican nominee Donald Trump met with six Gold Star families before his campaign rally in Jacksonville, Florida Wednesday night.

“I just visited with some incredible folks…some really amazing Gold Star families,” Trump told roughly 16,000 people at his campaign rally in Jacksonville, Florida. “Incredible people.”
Trump in Jacksonville, Florida, says he met with six Gold Star families backstage. He calls them "incredible people."
Trump’s meeting with Gold Star families comes after he received backlash from the Khans, a Gold Star family of a Muslim American soldier who was killed in combat.
“Trump then claimed that one of the family members handed him a campaign contribution in the form of a check,” according to CNN.

“He said, ‘It’s more money than we can afford, but I want you to have it for your campaign,'” Trump recalled.
