I'm disgusted by Donald Trump's selfish, hate-filled attacks on the parents of an American Muslim soldier who died bravely serving our country in Iraq.

Disgusted -- but not surprised.

Trump's plan is to turn Americans against each other. A deceitful and ugly blame game that says, whatever worries you, the answer is to blame that other group. Spend your energy hating them. And when that happens, there will be no energy to make real change and guys like Donald Trump can stay on top.

It's not a new tactic in America. It's a very old one. And like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. explained before us, we see it -- and we know how to defeat it.

Monday night at the Democratic National Convention, I spoke about how rich and powerful men like Donald Trump have used anger, fear, and hate to divide our country and keep the system rigged for the rich and powerful. Watch this three-minute clip and share it with your friends:

Donald Trump doesn't care about making America great again. That's why he doesn't think twice about attacking a Gold Star family. Donald Trump cares about exactly one thing -- and that's Donald Trump.

But at the end of the day, this election isn't about Donald Trump's cruelty. It's about us. About our patriotism. About our Constitution that Khizr Khan keeps in his pocket.

Yes, Americans are worried about their future -- angry about a system that's not working for America's families. And it is precisely in times like these, when our voices must be heard louder than ever, that we cannot turn on each other.

Along with the parents of Captain Humayun Khan, now is the time to stand together. Now is the time to stand up. Now is the time to recommit to the work of forming a more perfect union.

That's not Donald Trump's America. That's our America.

Thanks for being a part of this,
