Trump Jr.'s Branded Campaign Tweet Compares Refugees To Poisoned Skittles

Donald Trump Jr. drew outrage on Monday for sharing a tweet that compared Syrian refugees to poisoned skittles. The image was branded with the Trump-Pence 2016 logo.

“If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. (sic) Would you take a handful?” the text read. “That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”

Trump Jr. said the image “says it all” and that the U.S. must “end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first.”

Critics accused the Republican nominee’s son of dehumanizing an entire nation of people enduring a devastating five-year Civil War that has killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and made refugees out of some 4,800,087 million people, by the UN’s latest count.
