USA Today reports:
Donald Trump Jr. likened his father’s proposed border wall with Mexico to a zoo fence Tuesday evening, sparking a sharp backlash on social media from users who thought he was comparing immigrants to zoo animals. “You know why you can enjoy a day at the zoo?” the son of President Donald Trump wrote in an Instagram post that has since been deleted. “Because walls work.” In 2016, Trump Jr. provoked an outcry from critics when he turned to Twitter to liken Syrian refugees to a bowl of poisoned Skittles.
