Reports: Trump asked GOP for Backup on Khans, No One Responded (Stephanie Akin, 8/02/16, Roll Call)

As criticism mounted against Donald Trump Monday for his treatment of an American Muslim couple whose son died in the Iraq war, his campaign sent an appeal to Republicans in Congress to back him up, according to media reports. No one responded.  [...]
Instead of repeating Trump's suggested arguments, several Republicans issued statements denouncing him and thanking Khizr and Ghazala Khan for their sacrifice. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, who had led the way with a similar statement Sunday, circulated a "must-see" photograph of himself holding up a pocket copy of the constitution , as Khizr Khan had done at the Democratic National Convention the week before.
