Skittles Responded To Trump Jr.'s Argument Against Syrian Refugees
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, "If I had a bowl of Skittles and told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful?"By Ryan Biek | September 20, 2016
On Monday, Donald J. Trump Jr. tweeted this. It reads: "If I had a bowl of Skittles and told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That's our Syrian refugee problem."
The parent company of Skittles — and a lot of the internet — isn't so happy with that comparison.
Social media was in a frenzy, and political opponents — like President Barack Obama's speechwriter — dismissed Trump Jr. as inhumane for comparing millions of Syrians fleeing civil war and terrorism to candy.
