Yesterday, Donald Trump Jr likened Syrian refugees to a bowl of poison skittles as a promotion for his father’s campaign.

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

The metaphore expresses how if some people in a group are bad, then you shouldn’t trust anyone.

But Twitter came back at the post in fury.

Some posted harrowing images:

With the presidential campaign rapidly gaining speed, Trump is certainly trying to make even more of a name for himself.
