Donald Trump Jr. delivers a speech on the second day of the Republican National Convention on July 19 in Cleveland.

"I would like the Trump campaign to delete the image", he said, "but they are probably not interested in what I have to say". "Refugees are people. We don't feel it is an appropriate analogy". "That's three poison Skittles in one and a half Olympic-sized swimming pools of Skittles".

Donald Trump has long called for anti-immigrant and anti-refugee policies such as building a border wall between the USA and Mexico, implementing a total ban on Muslim immigration, overseeing the mass deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants, and creating a no-admittance policy for Syrian refugees into the United States over fears of terrorism concerns.

The graphic asked the question, "If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you". Although Miller said the Post has "their facts wrong", the statement did not dispute any facts, nor did it explain how "there was not, and could not be, any intent or motive for the Trump Foundation to make improper payments".

Their calculations are based on the number of Americans killed by refugees between 1975 and the end of 2015, and put the risk at one in 3.64 billion per year.

Even Skittles parent company Wrigley Americas weighed in on Trump's tweet with a statement from Vice President of Corporate Affairs Denise Young.

He also told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that it would be unwise for his father to release his tax returns because it would "distract" from his father's "main message".

Trump Jr's comments led many to share photos of Syrian children who are victims of the war, with the caption: "This boy is not a Skittle".

Trump has made screening, and in some cases outright barring, immigrants and refugees from entering the county a wedge issue in this year's presidential campaign.

A year ago, Clinton said she supported the admission of 65,000 Syrian refugees.

USA admission of Syrian refugees has always been a politically sensitive issue, although the country has admitted far fewer than many close allies.
