Internet slams Don Jr. for threatening to steal candy from his own daughter to teach her ‘socialism’
It’s Halloween, which means the president’s grandkids are celebrating along with the rest of the country by going trick-or-treating.
But if you’re Chloe, the daughter of Donald Trump, Jr., this Halloween might not be your best.
“I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home,” the eldest Trump child wrote. “It’s never to [sic] early to teach her about socialism.”

The Internet, of course, had a field day with the tiny Trump’s cruel Halloween lesson.
“Perhaps you would be teaching her kindness, awareness and generosity,” one user wrote. “Silly me, you’re a Trump. Poor Chloe.”
“Chloe your dad is an asshole,” another tweeted. “Have an adult not named Trump check your candy before you eat it.”

Also, imagine being Donald Trump Jr.'s kid. I feel for Chloe.

Don’t give Chloe’s candy to Tiffany Trump you bully

So take half Chloe’s candy and tell her to take you to court to get it back. That’s the “Trump Way”. Family motto “Semper mentiri”.

Apparently, words like charity, sympathy, and compassion are not part of the Trump family lexicon. I feel sorry for Chloe.

Imagine thinking that teaching your child to share is bad. https://t.co/tVa3Uw4x3R

Or you could let her keep her favorites AND taste the joy of giving the rest to kids w/ nothing. Never too early to teach her about grace https://t.co/Wb1UqCqNZP

Or you could give her secret Russian candy and blame Hillary.
Never to early to teach her about Trumpism.https://t.co/gARIEd0qfM

I'm going to collect free candy from kind strangers and then use it to teach my toddler how poor people are undeserving https://t.co/5HY9qoWz0F

You should hire someone to do her trick or treating for her and then not pay them- teach her how to be a Trump. https://t.co/vbuNod54Wp

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

You gonna tell Chloe how granddaddy and auntie employ slaves in China and Ethiopia? Never too early to teach about slavery…ask John Kelly. https://t.co/rm3T94vuFv

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

You’ve already taught her about being an asshole. https://t.co/xBODL1my3z

Just don't pump the candy full of lead and import it from China to teach her about crony capitalism https://t.co/3TWqHw0E8Y

Why are you so shitty & rotten to your own kid? Your dad? Ask her nicely if she'd like to share bc other kids don't have as much. Jerk. https://t.co/2kmvfVgVvq

make Chloe run and get candy every day and take most of it, leaving a few scraps for her to barely live on. https://t.co/gRo7eFBmQr

Hahah ahahhaa here we have DJT, a child of INHERITED WEALTH, stealing candy from his own child? This guy needs an indictment https://t.co/3i3c6K4Gs1

The no-strings attached candy that she received from strangers? https://t.co/fHZt6B47lb
— Kevin J (@kevinmj76) October 31, 2017
She'd probably be okay with it, too, because most kids understand that sharing is a good thing. https://t.co/EF7oIYd1uh
