On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. sent the Internet into a battle when he posted an adorable photo of his daughter, Chloe. The frenzy was not over the photograph, however, but over the caption that accompanied it.
The photo was of Trump Jr.'s daughter, Chloe, holding a bucket of her Halloween candy. The caption in question was about socialism.
He said, "I'm going to take half of Chloe's candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It's never [too] early to teach her about socialism."
Immediately after he posted the photo, many people on the Internet began bashing Trump Jr. for it. Many people were saying that the entire point of Halloween is about giving free candy to people who did not buy it.
The majority of those saying that the photo and caption were inappropriate were saying that Halloween is based on socialism. Others said that it is not appropriate to use children for political agendas. Lastly, some were arguing that the idea Donald Trump Jr. proposed actually looks more like capitalism. Some just fired back at Trump Jr.'s spelling error.
While many people came against Donald Trump Jr., others came to his defense. To debunk the idea that Halloween itself is based on socialism, many said that because Chloe put the time and effort into getting the candy and worked for it, she did not technically receive the candy "freely." Therefore, Trump Jr.'s point would have been valid.
