Trump Jr defends Skittles tweet

Donald Trump Jr. flew into Boise today for a fundraiser for his father’s presidential campaign, and also defended his controversial Twitter post comparing Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles, blaming the media and political correctness for the outcry over the post.

“I thought it was a good metaphor, and that’s all it is,” Trump Jr. said. “It is simply a metaphor for risk and probability, and we have to be careful about those things.”

He added, “I didn’t call people poisonous. … Our opponent called 100 million Americans deplorables”.
