Outspoken Trump critic and Gold Star father Khzir Khan cancelled a planned speech in Toronto as questions circle around the reasons.
The group planning Khan’s talk, Ramsay Talks, issued a cryptic statement on Facebook:
“Late Sunday evening Khizr Khan, an American citizen for over 30 years, was notified that his travel privileges are being reviewed. As a consequence, Mr. Khan will not be traveling to Toronto on March 7th to speak about tolerance, understanding, unity and the rule of law. Very regretfully, Ramsay Talks must cancel its luncheon with Mr. Khan. Guests will be given full refunds,” the statement, which was also posted on Facebook, reads.
“Mr. Khan offered his sincere apologies to all those who made plans to attend on March 7th. He said: ‘This turn of events is not just of deep concern to me but to all my fellow Americans who cherish our freedom to travel abroad. I have not been given any reason as to why. I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future.’”
It’s unknown what the group means when it mentions Khan’s “travel privileges,” The Hill reports. Khan wouldn’t comment and the group Ramsay Talks would offer no other clarification.
The event was a paid luncheon that focused on “the appalling turn of events in Washington – so that we don’t all end up sacrificing everything,” a description read.
“Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims, he disrespects minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership,” Khan told The Star, a Toronto-based news publication, late last week.
“He wants to build walls and ban us from this country,” Khan continued.
Humayun Khan, Khzir’s son, was killed in 2004 while serving in Iraq. He was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star.
