Khizr Khan, the father of a fallen Iraq veteran and an outspoken Muslim American who famously traded barbs with then-candidate Donald Trump on the campaign trail last year, canceled a planned Tuesday speaking appearance in Canada after being told that his “travel privileges” as a U.S. citizen are “being reviewed,” according to a representative.
