From Orlando Sentinel‘s Gray Rohrer, 08/02/2016:
Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi didn’t endorse Donald Trump’s recent comments about the father of a fallen Army captain, but they didn’t explicitly criticize him either.
Speaking to reporters after a Cabinet meeting Tuesday, both said they respect and honor Khizr Khan’s son Humayun, a U.S. Army captain killed in Iraq in 2004.
Scott wouldn’t say whether Trump needed to apologize, as the Veterans of Foreign Wars group has demanded.
“Well, you can talk to Donald Trump,” Scott said. “I can just tell you that from my standpoint I’m appreciative of everybody that’s served.”
Bondi added, “I’m not going to talk politics here today. What Mr. Khan and Mr. Trump are speaking about at the DNC and arguing about via Twitter, that’s between them. Let me tell you my position: Captain Khan was an American hero.”
