Khizer Kahn to Donald Trump:"Would my son have a place in your America?"

That's the closing to a new Clinton ad. Greg Sargent (Washington Post/Plum Line) reports A new Clinton ad features Khizr Khan confronting Trump’s hate. It’s remarkable — and significant.

... one of the under-appreciated stories of Campaign 2016 has been that in addition to leaving that old politics behind, this time around, Hillary Clinton and her campaign have fully engaged the debates over racism, sexism, and bigotry — with the moral urgency that Trumpism has demanded.

Just watch this new Clinton campaign ad featuring Khizr Khan recounting the story of his son’s death in Iraq, and concluding with this tearful but pointed question: “I want to ask Mr. Trump — would my son have a place in your America?”

The clip is embedded in Sargent's article.

The ad is set to run in at least seven battleground states, and CNN reports that this is the Clinton campaign’s thinking about the ad:

The ad is part of Clinton’s closing message, one that her top aides hope will be uplifting and hopeful, offering an implicit contrast to the combativeness that the Trump campaign has turned to in recent weeks.
