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

"I don't want to hear from him and I don't want to say anything to him," Ghazala Khan said on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews.

The couple expressed their discontent with the Republican presidential candidate's remarks, including Trump's own defense for his comments on his sacrifices.

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

"This indicates the lack of thoughtfulness on the candidate's part," Khizr Khan said. "In all his statements, there's a lack of tolerance and thoughtfulness."

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."
