Letter: Trump doesn't know meaning of sacrifice

Perhaps in addition to a copy of the Constitution, Khizr Khan could loan Donald Trump a dictionary. From what Trump has been saying, it appears he doesn’t know the meaning of the word “sacrifice.” According to my dictionary (American Heritage), it means “The forfeiture of something highly valued ... for the sake of someone or something considered to have greater value.”

Khan gave up his son to the defense of our country. His son gave up his life for his men. Creating jobs is not a sacrifice.

It would appear the only things Trump has given up are common courtesy and common sense.
