Donald Trump Jr recently uploaded a video on a Canadian website called Rumble where he targeted the teacher unions for not having broader policies to reopen schools amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. However, the video stirred a massive controversy as soon as it went live on the internet.

The eldest son of the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, also shared the video on his official Twitter account in which he can be seen standing in front of what appears to be a wall lined with guns. In the clip titled “These Teachers Unions Are OUT OF CONTROL,” Trump Jr bombarded the teacher unions with a plethora of allegations and also accused them of stopping progress by preventing schools from reopening.

Schools in various parts of the US have been shut since the coronavirus pandemic started wreaking havoc in the country and teacher unions have been demanding less hasty school reopening procedures in light of the global health crisis. Trump Jr said: “One of the things I want to talk about that I've been reading a lot about lately is sort of the stuff, as it relates to the teachers union. The teachers union and those representing them have definitely failed our children in terms of education and everything else.”

The two of the largest school unions in the US – The National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) – have been closely monitoring the situation since the pandemic began. They closely work with the government on how to reopen schools safely and how the education system should proceed further in the middle of a pandemic. However, after seeing the kind of risks it involves, they have never been in support of reopening schools.

Controversy and comparison to Osama bin Laden

As soon as the latest video surfaced online, people were talking less about what he’s saying in the video and more about what was in the background. Trump Jr was standing in front of a wall that was lined up with guns.  

Social media wasted no time in sharing the video across all platforms and called out Trump Jr for using guns as the backdrop. The users started comparing him to terrorist Osama bin Laden and sharing screenshots of how Bin Laden also had guns in the background of his videos.

One of the Twitter users said Trump Jr and Bin Laden need a wall of guns to feel like a man. She wrote: “What do Don Jr. and Osama Bin Laden have in common? Both need a wall of guns to feel like a man.” A Twitter user named Shannon Watts shared three photos on her timeline which showed Bin Laden, Trump Jr., and US Representative Lauren Boebert having assault weapons in the background.

However, people made fun of Trump Jr and said Bin Laden had more books in the background than guns. Another user said he hates giving publicity to Trump Jr but his latest video is proof that he desires to be the next Bin Laden. He wrote: “As much as I hate to give Junior any more free publicity, I think there is value in documenting his batshit craziness and his desire to be the next Osama Bin Laden." Another user said, “At least, Bin Laden was educated… #DomesticTerrorists #GQP." Others said that if the person making this video was black, he or she would have faced the consequences by now. “Now imagine @IlhanMN making this exact same video. Right. It’s not OK because he’s white,” one wrote.
