Gold Star Dad Forced To Cancel Canada Trip After Being Told His ‘Travel Privileges Are Being Reviewed’

by John Prager –

Khizr Khan, a Muslim-American gold star dad who made an enemy of Donald Trump during the campaign, seems to be facing the bigot-in-chief’s wrath now that The Donald has the power to mess with him. On Monday, it was announced that Khan’s planned speech in Toronto has been canceled after he was notified that his “travel privileges are being reviewed.”

Rosa Hwang, a senior producer at CTV National News, tweeted the rather disconcerting news:

JUST IN: Gold Star father Khizr Khan cancels scheduled speech in Toronto after being told his “travel privileges are being reviewed.”

Though some initially questioned the legitimacy of the announcement, this was confirmed by RamsayTalks, who was hosting the Khan event, who assured those who would be attending that they would be refunded the $89-per-ticket cost:

“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,” Khan, whose son died in Iraq, told RamsayTalks. “I am grateful for your support and look forward to visiting Toronto in the near future.”

CBC Politics reporter John Paul Trasker also confirmed Monday that Khan was scheduled to sppear on one of their broadcasts while he was in town, bur (of course) was forced to cancel that appearance as well.

Khizr Khan, the Gold Star dad, was scheduled to be on @TheCurrentCBC tomorrow while in T.O., now “travel privileges are being reviewed.”

“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,” Khan says

During Trump’s campaign, Khan, a U.S. citizen for over 30 years, and his family, suffered numerous and repeated attacks from The Donald following their decision to rebuke him and his hatred.

On Monday, Trump signed a new Muslim Ban into effect — one that does nothing to help protect us from terrorism, but that makes Muslims both within our borders and without feel afraid and unwanted.
