Trump Jr. used former refugee's photo for controversial Skittles tweet
By: Josh King
Donald Trump Jr. is facing even more backlash for his tweet comparing Skittles to Syrian refugees after it was revealed the man who took the photo is himself a former refugee.
The photographer, David Kittos, told the BBC he did not give Trump Jr. permission to use his photo and would not have approved using it against refugees.

Kittos, who now lives in the U.K., fled Cyprus when he was 6 during the Turkish occupation of the island.
Kittos is uncertain if he will move forward with legal action against the son of the Republican Presidential candidate, saying, "I was thinking about getting lawyers involved, but I don't know if I have the patience."
The image, a bowl of Skittles with text that reads "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," has sparked even more controversy for the Trump campaign during a pivotal point in the presidential race.
