Donald Trump Jr. offered an early lesson on socialism for his young daughter that had many progressives outraged.
The son of President Donald Trump shared a photo of his daughter, Chloe, dressed as a police officer and holding candy, with the caption “I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.”

Progressives, and anti-Trumpers, on social media attacked the tweet both for his spelling of the word “to” and for the message.
“Harry Potter” author, and avid opponent of the president, J.K. Rowling, was one of the most outspoken.
“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,” she wrote.

Having inherited all my candy, I’ll pass laws to take candy from as many poor kids as possible and give it to Chloe. https://t.co/95UZUbrDO1

No, but someone stealing you stuff and giving it to others is.

Jealousy is unbecoming.
Not all of Trump Jr.’s Halloween pictures were as controversial.
The family appeared to be mainly dressed as American heroes.
In addition to Chloe, 3, being a police officer, his sons Tristan, 6, and Spencer, 5 dressed as soldiers. And Trump Jr. dressed as his president dad, draped in the American flag.
It was not know what 10-year-old daughter Kai, or son Donald Trump III, 8, were wearing.
