Donald Trump has set Twitter abuzz.
His reply to the father of a fallen Muslim soldier has become the talking point on the micro-blogging site.
“I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices,” the Republican presidential nominee told ABC News, apparently in response to Khizr Khan who said Trump had “sacrificed nothing and no one”.
Khan, a US citizen of Pakistani origin and a Muslim, won praise when he spoke on Thursday at the Democratic National Convention, telling the story of his son, US army captain Humayun Khan, killed by a bomb in Iraq in 2004.
Trump’s apparent response to Khan led to some outburst and lots and lots of funny tweets, as #TrumpSacrifices started trending within hours.
There was some chatter about food
