Donald Trump chided Hillary Clinton on Tuesday for failing to renounce Seddique Mateen, the father of the Orlando nightclub shooter who attended the Democratic nominee's rally in Florida on Monday.
"She did not disavow and if that were me this would be a headline all around the world. He's got some pretty harsh views," Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity late Tuesday. "It's a whole double standard, but we're punching through it and I think the people understand."
While Omar Mateen's father was not involved in his son's brutal attack on the Pulse Nightclub in June, which killed 49 people and wounded 53 others, he posted a video the day after the mass shooting condemning homosexuality — a stance that differs with Clinton's views.
He is also an ideological supporter of the Afghan Taliban, which harbored Osama bin Laden after the Sept. 11 attacks.
