The video  speculated that Barron trump might be autistic which he was not, added  Harder. The video included 'StopThe Bullying' but it was actually doing the opposite and harassing the 10-year-old and his parents, Harder further emphasized.

The video hit the bull's eye after Trump's longtime enemy Rosie O'Donnell shared it on her twitter account question Barron Trump's autistic condition. "If so - what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic," she tweeted.

James Hunter, on the other hand, has responded to Melania Trump's threatening through a statement given to Gossip cop.

Hunter shared that he was on the same spectrum and he had great respect for Melania Trump. He also said that she would be an excellent first lady.

On Monday, the YouTube video had more than 3.2 million views.
