- Donald Trump Jr. tried to teach his daughter a lesson on socialism using her Halloween candy.
- It did not go over well.
Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter on Halloween to let the internet know he was teaching his 3-year-old daughter Chloe a lesson on socialism.
Trump Jr. wrote that he was “going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight” and “give it to some kid who sat at home.”
“It’s never too early to teach her about socialism,” he wrote.
The internet, predictably, roasted President Donald Trump’s son for his post, which had more than 63,000 replies and 18,000 retweets as of Wednesday morning.

Calm down everyone. He’s only joking.
Or, you could take 99% of the candy and give it to the richest kid on the block to teach her about crony capitalism.#WednesdayWisdom https://t.co/jQPa7cumM2

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. https://t.co/0lbhHYyFe4

I took half my kid’s candy tonight, ate it myself, and then blamed Hillary for it. It’s never too early to teach him about Trump’s America. https://t.co/Cp2GpLErtN

She learned enough about socialism when he took her door to door asking for handouts. It’s not too late to teach generosity though https://t.co/3s7FEjzK2o

My man, “socialism” was her getting that free candy in the first place. You taking half for reasons she can’t understand is capitalism https://t.co/w9x9zB0xLA

Nah. Just take some candy from your trick or treaters & give her even more. Never too early to teach her about her grandfather’s tax code. https://t.co/yzJaQOK96h

Man, that joke never gets old. It’s like skimming money off a charity for kids or colluding with a foreign government, there’s always room. https://t.co/zV4wRx31WP
