Donald Trump Jr. likens Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles
WASHINGTON - Donald Trump Jr. has posted a message on Twitter likening Syrian refugees to a bowl of poisoned Skittles.
Seeking to promote his father's presidential campaign, the younger Trump posted a tweet featuring a bowl of the candy Skittles with a warning.
"If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you, would you take a handful?" said the tweet on the verified DonaldJTrumpJr handle.
"That's our Syrian refugee problem," said the post, which caused a stir and negative tweets on the internet into Tuesday.
Young Trump's tweet said, "This image says it all. Let's end the politically correct agenda that doesn't put America first."

His father has advocated sharply restraining immigration and has accused opponent Hillary Clinton of advocating acceptance of thousands of refugees.
