Donald Trump Jr. Compares Syrian Refugees to Poisoned Skittles

Donald Trump Jr. was widely condemned Monday on social media for his tweet comparing poisoned candy to Syrian refuges.

Even Skittles parent company Wrigley Americas weighed in on Trump's tweet with a statement from Vice President of Corporate Affairs Denise Young.

"These are people who dream of living in a country where food is so plentiful, we waste our candy on metaphors", Colbert explained. "We don't feel it's an appropriate analogy. That's out Syrian refugee problem".

Yesterday, Donald Trump Jr got in a whole heap of trouble for tweeting an image that compared refugees to poisonous Skittles.

Kittos, who was 6 years old when he went to the United Kingdom, also told the BBC that he doesn't "support Trump's politics and I would never take his money to use it".

"This was six years ago when there were no Syrian refugees at the time and it was never done with the intention of spreading a political message".

He allowed five hits and one walk with five strikeouts to follow the six scoreless innings he tossed at the Blue Jays on Saturday. Nolasco (7-14) produced his third scoreless outing for the Angels (67-86) since being acquired from the Twins on August 1.

Trump Jr.'s tweet prompted a barrage of angry responses on Twitter.

A spokesman saying quote, "Skittles are candy".

Mr Kittos is a keen photographer and told the BBC: "I was just experimenting with something called off-camera flash".

"I would like the Trump campaign to delete the image", he said, "but they are probably not interested in what I have to say". He is not sure whether he will bring legal action against the Trump campaign.

Of the three Trump children active in their father's campaign, Donald Trump Jr. was the first to give a speech at the party convention in Cleveland this summer - which was well received by many in the audience.

"A nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself", Obama declared without mentioning Trump by name or his proposed wall on the U.S. -Mexico border to stop immigrants coming from Latin American countries. There are no known threats to national security in the US - or in Canada, which has accepted more than 30,000 Syrians since last November - linked to the resettlement of Syrian refugees.
