Trump Jr's Halloween lesson on 'socialism' gets sour reaction

Trump Jr's Halloween lesson on 'socialism' gets sour reaction

Donald Trump Jr.'s daughter Chloe maybe did not have a very fun Halloween, if a now viral Tuesday tweet from the president's son is to believed.

This system basically tries to give shares of production while recognising effort, ability and privilege; the latter is something the Trumps know full well, but choose to think they've "worked" for all their spoils in the same way a single mother born into poverty struggles to put food on the table for her children. "It's never to early to teach her about socialism", the United States president's son posted, along with a picture with a bucket of treats.

Donald Trump Sr. famously got his start in the real estate business with a loan from his wealthy father Fred, who was in the same industry. Trump is the eldest child of Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana Trump.

"Taking it to the next level #merica #maga #halloween #costume #nyc #kids #trump", he captioned an Instagram post showing off his look while posing with his children.

A Harvard study past year showed that a majority of millennials now reject capitalism, although only a third would go so far as to say they support socialism.

Many on Twitter were quick to point out that Trump's logic was flawed at best. He sent social media into a frenzy by remarking about socialism in the caption.

The tweet gathered 73,000 comments in less than 24 hours, including one from J.K. Rowling - the author of the Harry Potter series - who mocked Trump Jr's inherited wealth. "Never too early to teach her about the Trump Organization".

The executive's tweet unwittingly sparked a debate with those on the left who thought trick or treating was a poor example of free market economics.
