Donald Trump Jr. defends Skittles comment in Boise

He said the tweeted picture did not represent a ratio of terrorists to refugees because he "didn't say numbers of Skittles", even though the accompanying test asks if someone would take a handful of the sweets knowing "just three would kill you". Even Wrigley, the company that owns Skittles, stepped in to the controversy, saying, "Skittles are candy".

"I think it's about speaking not to the political elite but speaking to the people".

No matter how frequently and accurately Cuomo insisted that our vetting system for refugees has been thoroughly effective (no Syrian refugees have attacked the United States), Duffy changed the conversation. "That's our Syrian refugee problem". "Refugees are people. We don't feel it's an appropriate analogy".

It emerged on Wednesday that the image used in Mr Trump jnr's original post was taken by a refugee who did not give permission for the photo to be used.

Indeed, before we go straight to Skittles, let's acknowledge that impactful discussions surround how best to balance national security and humanitarian impulses. "We respectfully refrain from further comment, as that could be misinterpreted as marketing".

He has also had a taste of reality stardom, appearing as an adviser on "The Celebrity Apprentice", an iteration of his father's hit show "The Apprentice".

Trump said he didn't "want to be a distraction" to the campaign, but that the negative response was being driven by partisan attacks.

Hats off to everyone within the team". "That's it for me for a Paralympic legacy, I just move on, sit down and have a month off". Meanwhile, Britain's Jessica Stretton capped off a dominant performance in the archery winning the individual compound W1 event.

This is not the first time Trump Jr. has used imagery that some believe carries xenophobic or racist connotations. And last week he made what resembled a Holocaust-themed joke in a radio interview, suggesting that if Republicans behaved in the same way Democrats are in 2016, the media would be "warming up the gas chamber".

Kittos says he hasn't decided whether he'll involve lawyers and try to force the Trump campaign to delete the image.

Trump Jr. said later he was referring to capital punishment.

He also told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that it would be unwise for his father to release his tax returns because it would "distract" from his father's "main message". "They should not be stealing an image full stop".

At the same time, Trump supporters rallied behind the tweet.

Skittles' handling of the situation will be taught to PR students in years to come, one expert said.
