Donald Trump Jr. thinks his father has been treated worse than any human in American history -- including slaves, Native Americans and presidents who have been assassinated while in office.
After President Donald Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that "there's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as I have been," Trump Jr. jumped on Twitter to defend his father and simply said that "he's right."
He’s right. https://t.co/ZRlenHkXrq— Donald Trump Jr. (@Donald Trump Jr.) 1560775053.0
Trump Jr.'s tweet shows vast ignorance of American history, however, as the president has never been enslaved, has never had to work as a sharecropper, has never been denied the right to vote due to his race or gender, and has never been sent to an internment camp based on his ethnicity.
Given this, Trump Jr. was quickly buried in mockery by his Twitter followers -- check out some of the top reactions below.
