There's a growing memorial of flowers and American flags surrounding the grave of fallen U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, as the slain Iraq war soldier's parents continue to be embroiled in a war of words with presidential candidate Donald Trump.

But as Trump and his campaign tweet their rebuttals, Muslim women are taking part in a social media campaign targeting yet another one of the Republican nominee's controversial remarks.

They feel Trump's comments on Ghazala Khan, Humayun's mother, as she stood in silence on stage next to her husband Khizr Khan at the Democratic National Convention last week in Philadelphia, were disrespectful, and they want Trump to hear them loud and clear.
