Donald Trump is undoubtedly one of the most divisive people in the world, with his controversial quotes never failing to make us face-palm on the regular.
There was the time he said he should get a Nobel Prize, his statement that the queen had the most fun in years during his UK tour and the recent snubbing of his children - seeming to forget his daughter’s birthday only recently.
This week however it was his approach to Halloween that got everyone talking, as he seemed to mock children as he handed out candy.
Yes, really. In a video that is going viral, Donald and Melania Trump can be seen giving out Halloween candy to children in front of the White House.
But one child - dressed as a minion from Despicable Me - became the subject of a viral video as Trump placed the candy on the child’s head so they were unable to reach it, with the candy inevitably falling off onto the floor.
The video has unsurprisingly gone viral and while a lot of people have defended the joke as a bit of festive fun, some internet users are not having it.
‘Donald & Melania Trump have decided to use this Halloween season to bully small children,’ tweeted one user, while another posted: ‘Even when passing out Halloween candy, Donald Trump is a complete dick’.
Donald Trump has not yet commented on the incident.
