Trump Jr. likens refugees to poisoned skittles, Twitter responds

WASHINGTON (AP) — 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 @DonaldTrumpJr handle.

"That's our Syrian refugee problem," said the post, which caused a stir and negative tweets on the internet into Tuesday.
