Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on Friday a controversial tweet where he compared the Mexicans to animals.

"You know why you can enjoy a day at the zoo? Because walls work," His tweet said, and has removed it from his account shortly after.

Trump Jr.'s tweet was posted less then a month after the US government was partially shut down as his father, President Donald Trump demanded the congress to assign $5 billion for building a wall along the US-Mexico border.

Trump Jr. shared controversial posts on social media before, as he posted to Instagram a movie poster parody of himself heroically grouped with others deemed “The Deplorables,”

In his twitter account, Trump Jr. has had a go at Louis Farrakhan and the Democratic party early in 2018 as well.
