The Trump family loves Twitter there is no denying that. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out a lesson about Socialism on Halloween and it was horribly wrong.
Trump Jr. used his daughter’s Halloween candy as the example and said, “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.”
The grammatical error in his tweet, it should be ‘too’ not ‘to,’ isn’t the only mistake he made. Trump Jr. seems to not understand the difference between socialism and sharing. The dictionary definition of socialism is “a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state.” Halloween candy isn’t “earned” it’s free and distributed, kind of like socialism.
Trump Jr. also doesn’t know why kids didn’t go trick or treating. Maybe their parents were working so they couldn’t take them trick or treating, they were sick or they couldn’t afford a costume. Sharing is caring, but not if you’re a Trump because that’s considered socialism.
People were quick to point out that Trump Jr. didn’t “earn” any of his money. It was all inherited from his dad through his grandfather.
Trump Jr. better hit those books if he wants to comment on different forms of government. Just because your dad is the president doesn’t make you an expert.
