- Trump Jr. sent a tweet Tuesday
- His dig at socialism got a reaction
"I'm going to take half of Chloe's candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It's never to (sic) early to teach her about socialism," the President's eldest son tweeted, along with a photo of his daughter dressed as a police officer and carrying a bucket of candy.
Trump Jr.'s dig at socialism got a reaction from some on the left.
"Fill her bucket with old candy left by her great-grandfather, then explain that she has more because she's smarter than all the other kids," tweeted "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling.
The socialist magazine Jacobin tweeted a screenshot of Trump Jr.'s tweet and wrote, "Just wait until she finds out about capital income!"
And Twitter user @Bearpigman said socialism was more similar to children getting free candy from trick-or-treating than it was to her father taking her candy.
Trump Jr., like his father, tweets relatively often, drawing a mixture of praise from President Donald Trump's supporters and scorn from his detractors on social media.
Trump Jr. garnered controversy last year when he tweeted a meme comparing refugees to Skittles. The Trump campaign defended
his tweet, while the candy maker distanced itself
from Trump Jr.'s comparison.
