Trump said he was 'viciously attacked' by father of slain soldier

One of the most memorable moments from the Democratic National Convention is still making waves.

Khizr Khan, a lawyer and father of Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed serving in the Army in Baghdad in 2004, accused Donald Trump of having "sacrificed nothing."

Mr. Khan, who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution...
Donald Trump

Trump responded in an interview set to air Sunday morning on ABC, claiming Khan's comments were out of line.

Trump also implied Khizr's wife Ghazala Khan, who stood beside him as he spoke, was "not allowed" to speak. But in an emotional MSNBC interview on Saturday, she said she was too grief-stricken to speak at the convention.

Trump has responded on Twitter Sunday by saying "this" is about "RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR."

Trump continued to respond to criticism of his reaction.
