According to the Guardian, Khan claims that Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has urged the Muslim Gold Star father to run for office.
Khan, however, claims that a position in office “would limit him.” Breitbart News reached out to McAuliffe’s communications director, but could not comment in regards to the private conversation they had. The Virginia Gov. called Khan a ‘great Virginian” and voiced his appreciation for his son’s service.
Khan first made a name for himself when he spoke at the Democratic National Convention in August when he showed off a copy of the U.S. Constitution and described Donald Trump as “ignorant.” Khan, whose son was an Army captain and awarded the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star Medal after being killed by a suicide bomber, claims Trump “sacrificed nothing and no one.”
Khan has lauded the sharia law and insisted that other laws “must always be subordinated” to Islam’s in an article he wrote in Saudi Arabia in 1983. He also made a living by representing wealthy foreign clients who were trying to get U.S. visas for themselves and their families in a program many have claimed was “riddled” with fraud.
