Khan famously spoke out against Trump at last year&#8217;s Democratic National Convention and continues to do so.  Khan has said the U.S. Declaration of Independence is &#8220;the story, really, of all colonized peoples everywhere and in every era.&#8221; He discusses his first experience reading the U.S. Constitution as a young man, noting: &#8220;It all made so much sense.&#8221;
