Donald Trump Junior was hoping for an anti-Islamic narrative tied to the deadly terrorist shooting in a Quebec mosque. Thanks to social media, his racist sentiments are now revealed:


Donald Trump Jr. liked a post on Twitter extolling the “tremendous spike in political capital” his father, President Donald Trump, will receive once “it’s revealed that the Quebec Shooting terrorists are Muslims.”

The original tweet was posted Monday by John Cardillo, a former NYPD officer and syndicated radio host, who incorrectly posited that the attacker was a Muslim. In fact, 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette, the lone suspect in the attack that left six people dead and eight wounded Sunday night, is an anti-Muslim, far-right Trump supporter.

Carrillo’s tweet links the Sunday night Mosque massacre to Trump’s executive order restricting immigration from several predominantly Muslim countries. The Trump administration has continuously insisted the order is not a “ban” and does not target one religion, despite the president’s own use of the word “ban.”

And no, he can’t hide behind “I meant it’ll help Daddy!” It’s still racist.
