Don Jr. is becoming as desperate as his father to hold on to whatever may be left of the Trump family’s days in office. We’ve seen his father stoop pretty low to divide this country, but in a tweet this morning, Don Jr. just proved he may be even worse than Trump himself, and his tweet is pretty terrifying — it’s exactly the reason these “white genocide” conspiracy theories are floating around and are motivating people like Robert Bowers to gun down a synagogue full of people, leaving 11 dead, including a 97-year-old Holocaust survivor.
In an attack against the Independent Angus King of Maine, Junior tweeted:
Angus King is a Fake Independent who votes with Schumer 88% of the time. Angus wants to repopulate Maine with Syrian and Somalian refugees. Support @SenatorBrakey who fights for secure borders and Better Jobs for Maine. #me #maine

This is an obvious attempt to scare those familiar with conspiracy theories from the likes of Neo-Nazi David Lane into believing that socialists and Jews are plotting to take over the white race and destroy it by integrating non-white people. You know, like the Syrian and Somalian refugees that Junior mentioned above in his tweet.
Writer Talia Lavin points out how this tracks, below:
By the way, if you’re curious why or how this tracks with rising anti-Semitism: “Jews will not replace us” was about the notion that Jews are nefariously orchestrating immigration in order to destroy the white race. https://t.co/GFw61GLe8t

As you might expect, Junior’s tweet was not well received. Some of the responses were scathing!
I live in Maine. The immigrant community does more to revitalize our cities & economy than @GOP. Without them, we’re an aging society with fewer & fewer people who are young enough to work. Not only is Brakey going to lose, we’ll send @SenatorCollins packing in 2020

@DonaldJTrumpJr is a fake American who protects his dads corruption 100% of the time. He wants to repopulate America with loyal subjects, not American citizens. He has Trump values, not American values. Vote no.

In which an entitled, arrogant man who inherited all that he has in life attacks Syrian and Somalian refugees and the Americans who would help them. Nice.

Nothing like fear and hatred of non-white refugees to fire up the base right? That’s the only message you and the @GOP have got.

Yawn….the @GOP has nothing to offer Americans so they turn to their last but predictable strategy, fear. The problem is, most of the country is angry, not fearful.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. It’s time to vote and get these racists out of the White House once and for all.
