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.
Perhaps that child stayed bc he had cancer, was disabled, was in foster care or parents couldn’t afford a costume.Would sharing be that bad?

When I was sick on Halloween when I was 6 and had to stay home, my brother gave me half his candy. If her sister was sick, would she share?

That's not how socialism works. You might want to have someone explain it to you before you try to teach it to a kid.

Cool cool cool. Way to bring your daughter into the Trump way of dividing America.

You mean the candy that she got for free out of the goodness of strangers' hearts? 😂😂😂
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.
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

She was given candy for free.
You inherited all your money.
You met with Russian spies.
It’s “too”. https://t.co/Bsf5wkQxST

Take 80% of her candy and give it to the top 1% of trick or treaters. You know like your dads' tax plan.

Imagine being the son of Donald Trump and believing you earned your candy.

By looks of that empty bucket U should be teaching her how to work harder. OR, U can just teach her to file bankruptcy and live off others.

Better idea: have her take out loans, use the money to buy and eat candy, then default and declare bankruptcy. That's the Trump way. https://t.co/juVD1FMq2o

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.
