The eldest Trump son was answering to organized student opposition to a planned Chick-Fil-A franchise on Duquesne University campus. The Atlanta based restaurant has come under criticism on many occasions over the last few years for standing against equal rights protections for LGBT Americans.
“Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights,” Niko Martini, a Student Government Association Senator at Large, wrote to the Duquesne Duke. “I think it’s imperative the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion.”
Although many people cheered the activists for taking the strong stand against Chick-Fil-A, the President’s son decided that he would target them for ridicule as seen in the tweet below:120

@DonaldJTrumpJr Your complete obliviousness to oppression and the plight of others is so baffling. You are so far removed and privileged beyond belief.

@DonaldJTrumpJr The idea that the President’s son is tweeting insults to a marginalized group of American citizens is wrong on so many levels. Sad.

@DonaldJTrumpJr also, your family are among the softest cowards this country has to offer, so you might want to reconsider the tact that others have it easy

@DonaldJTrumpJr your dad likes his son-in-law more than you or your brother

With rhetoric like this coming from the powerful rich, it is more evident than ever that protective laws are more necessary for the USA’s minority people.
Look at that smug self satisfied entitled face…you can’t possibly expect a son of Donald Trump to anything more than ridicule and mock anyone who have experienced discrimination. Like father, like son.
