Washington - 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.

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

Many people replied to his tweet with pictures of refugee children in peril.
