Donald Trump had no idea what a Gold Star family was when he began a feud with Khizr and Ghazala Khan. According to New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, Trump frustrated campaign aides when he lashed out at the Khans, parents of a fallen Muslim American soldier, who criticized Trump onstage at the Democratic National Convention. “You do know you just attacked a Gold Star family?” an adviser reportedly asked Trump, who simply replied, “What’s that?” The exchange is among several insightful anecdotes gleaned from interviews with “more than two dozen current and former Trump advisers, friends and senior Republican officials,” all of whom, Sherman writes, described Trump as “an unmanageable candidate who still does not fully understand the power of the movement he has tapped into, who can’t see that it is larger than himself.”
