It's no secret that Donald Trump Jr and his father want to 'drain the swamp' in Washington DC. However it seems that Trump Jr has another affinity with swamps - he enjoys swimming in them.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the president's 40-year-old eldest son shared a photograph of himself swimming through an alligator infested, slime-covered lake, in Louisiana, with the caption:

This is what happens when someone bets me a good sum that there’s no way that the guy from New York City would swim in a gator infested swamp/bayou down in Louisiana.

Easy money!!!

Trump Jr was reportedly in Broussard, Louisiana, to support attorney general Jeff Landry's hunting fundraiser, and spoke onstage to members of the "Trump train".

Before hunting alligators with Rep. Steve Scalise while wearing a camo "Trump" hat, the business man and ex-reality TV star said:

It's an honor to be here and I'm excited to go get a big gator.

He was accompanied by his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, who also posted images of the event to her Instagram account, including a photograph of herself pouting next to a dead and roasted pig:

Needless to say, the photographs of Trump didn't go down well on social media.

Some riffed on the 'drain the swamp' line.

Others saw it as the ultimate 'self own'.

Others focused on the fact that there is apparently nothing the Trumps won't do for money.

Just HOW far is Trump Jr willing to go to own the libs?

And, isn't it interesting that the gators literally didn't touch him?

Others were unimpressed with said gators.

However, most people seemed to agree on one point.
