    Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of a fallen U.S. Army captain, don't want an apology from Donald Trump.

    The couple expressed their discontent with the Republican presidential candidate's remarks, including Trump's own defense for his comments on his sacrifices during an appearance on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews.

    "His answer defines him," said Khizr Khan. "Any decent American listening to that understands how he is defining sacrifice. That is not the definition of sacrifice."

    The Khans called Trump's actions "disappointing, void of empathy and of moral compass."

    The couple agreed that the best apology for Trump's actions would be for his supporters to repudiate him.

    "We don't need any apology from him; we are beyond those apologies," Khan said. "We were promised that he would pivot and change and he will not do that."
