How Not to Be a Better Bloke: Compare Syrian refugees to Skittles

Donald Trump Jr compares Syrian refugees to Skittles

Skittles controversy

In the US, each year, you are far more likely to die due to choking on candy than due to a terrorist attack by a refugee

  • 1 in 3,408 chance of choking to death on food

  • 1 in 3,640,000,000 chance of being killed by a refugee in a terror attack


There has been no reaction from Donald Trump’s campaign.

But Nick Merrill, Hillary Clinton’s travelling press secretary, earlier tweeted that Donald Jr’s postwas “disgusting”.
