Sen. Boozman calls Trump's comments 'out of line'

(KAIT) - A lawmaker from Arkansas said he doesn't agree with Donald Trump's comments about the family of a Muslim-American Army Captain.

In an interview with Talk Business & Politics on Monday, U.S. Sen. John Boozman said, "Captain [Humayun] Khan was a true American hero."

Sen. Boozman also said Trump's comments were "out of line and unnecessary."

He went on to explain that even though he disagrees with Trump's proposal to ban Muslims, he stills supports Trump.

Last week, Capt. Khan's parents appeared at the Democratic National Convention.

His father, Khizr Khan criticized Trump for proposing the ban.

Khan also accused Trump of making no sacrifices for his country.

Among the comments, Trump made after that speech was that Capt. Khan's mother did not speak because her religion prevented her from it.
