Netizens slam American businessman Donald Trump Jr for his comments against the US Navy's plan to disassemble the ship stuck in the Tubbataha reef

MANILA, Philippines – American businessman Donald Trump Jr., son of real estate mogul Donald Trump, believes the US Navy’s proposal to dismantle the USS Guardian to prevent further damage on the Tubbataha reefs isn’t such a sound idea. 

His comments incurred the ire of netizens, who were quick to point out that the importance of the Tubbataha Reef National Park extends beyond monetary value. In 1993, Tubbataha Reef was designated UNESCO World Heritage site. 

Unperturbed, Trump defended his position.

And despite the barrage of online criticism, Trump has stood by his position and remained unapologetic.
