— -- Donald Trump Jr. defended his now infamous tweet comparing refugees to a bowl of Skittles at a press conference in Boise, Idaho, today.
“To me it was a simple metaphor," Trump Jr. said. "You know people will today make what they want of anything, and they see the worst in everything and they look for subtext that doesn’t exist.”
The graphic asked the question, “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful?”
“That’s our Syrian refugee problem,” it reads. Trump Jr. added, “This image says it all.”
