Trump's Sacrifices.

From ABC News

One of the most powerful lines in one of the DNC’s most emotional speeches came when Khizr Khan, the Muslim father of a U.S. Army captain killed in Iraq, told Donald Trump, “You have sacrificed nothing!” Now, in his first response to Khan’s address, during an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos set to air Sunday morning, Trump responded to that line by saying,“I think I've made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard.”

Apparently Trump has some difficulty coming up with any actual sacrifices he had made.

Pressed by Stephanopoulos to name the sacrifices he’d made for his country, Trump said: “I think I've made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I've created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures.

Some have suggested that putting your name on Casinos is not quite as big a sacrifice as losing one's son in battle.

In case the question comes up again, I have made up my own list of some stuff Trump lost or never had: decency, honor, dignity, and self-respect.
