In November last year, he told The Wall Street Journal: "It took me probably forty-one years to realize I was a lot more like my dad than either of us had ever thought. Our default mode is, I guess, attack."

Prior to his presidency, Trump's eldest son had always allowed his sister, Ivanka, to take the spotlight...

When complaining about recent news coverage, he had said that the media would be "warming up the gas chambers" if Republicans acted like rival Hillary Clinton. The Trump campaign later said clarified his comments were about capital punishment and not the Holocaust.

His stance on Syrian refugees caused an outroar, too.

In one massively controversial tweet, he compared Syrian refugees to Skittles. "If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you, would you take a handful?" the tweet said alongside a Trump-Pence-branded image of the popular candy. "That's our Syrian refugee problem."

And, as you may have guessed, he quite regularly causes a stir amongst the LGBTQ community.

Like father, like son.

When he Tweeted the name of the alleged whistleblower who first reported concerns about President Trump's attempts to pressure the Ukrainian government into investigating 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
