Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who publicly feuded with Donald Trump after endorsing Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in July, ripped the GOP nominee at a Clinton rally yesterday, saying, "Thankfully, Mr. Trump, this isn't your America".

"Mr. Trump, this isn't your America and on Tuesday - and on Tuesday - and on Tuesday - and on Tuesday we are going to prove America belongs to all of us", he boasted.

"Donald Trump, would my son, Capt. Humayun Khan, have a place in your America? Would anyone who isn't like you have a place in your America?" he asked.

The crowd was silent, then roared when Khan delivered his denouement.

The Democratic presidential candidate is campaigning in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Clinton on Sunday gave a subdued version of her stump speech focussing largely on the threat she said Trump poses to American values and national security.

Highlighting the sharp contrast between her vision for the USA and that of Donald Trump, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has said the country's "core values" were at stake in the polls as she urged people to vote for an "inclusive" and "big-hearted" America.

When Clinton took the podium, she thanked Khan for his support and made a nod toward the hard task of mending fences after a divisive presidential campaign. "We will show there is no doubt about the outcome of this election", she said.

Clinton is more popular than Trump in polls, but her favorability rating remains underwater. "They see that we are a beacon of freedom, hope and opportunity for people, right here, at home", she said amidst applause from the audience.

It was Clinton's second celebrity serenade of the day - R&B singer Bebe Wynans sang to her at a church service in Philadelphia - and it was part of a star-spangled final few days that put Democrats' ties to the entertainment world on display.
