Donald Trump Jr. compares Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles

Donald Trump's appearance on Monday in Estero, Fla., got eclipsed by comments made by his son, Donald Trump Jr., about Syrian refugees.

Tweeting an image with the "Make America Great Again" logo, he compared Syrian refugees to poisoned Skittles. The caption reads: "The image says it all. Let's end the politically correct agenda that doesn't put America first."

The message echoes the elder Trump's comments about curbing immigration to the United States, including tactics such as immigration bans from "compromised" nations. Trump also came down hard on Clinton when she supported accepting thousands of more refugees into the country.

The U.S. accepted its 10,000th Syrian refugee in late August and plans to accept at least 110,000 more refugees in the fiscal year 2017, a White House official said.

Also worth noting, Obama plans to convene a Refugee Summit on Tuesday involving leaders from Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden. His goal? To secure agreements for food aid and to double the number of refugees resettled in third countries each year.
