Donald Trump Jr. Dresses as His Father for Halloween

Trump Jr dressed as his father. Daughter Chloe 3 dressed as a police officer. Sons Tristan 6 and Spencer 5 went as soldiers. It is not clear what daughter Kai 10 is. Not

As children the length and breadth of America were out celebrating Halloween, Donald Trump Jr made a decision to use his daughter's candy stash to make a point.

Here's how Stevenson replied to Trump Jr.'s tweet, telling about a time she had to skip out on Halloween because she had a fever and was too sick to go out.

"I'm going to take half of Chloe's candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat home tonight ...", began the tweet.

Trump followed up by sharing a photo of daughter Chloe before putting his kids to bed. "Refugees are people. We don't feel it's an appropriate analogy".

There were also messages of support for Trump Jr's decision to teach his daughter a valuable lesson. Maybe he's like many other sweet-toothed parents with a guilt complex, occasionally inserting life lessons as a reason to pilfer candy.

Some were unconvinced Donald Trump Jr actually understood what socialism was, pointing out his daughter's candies would likely have been handed over for free by generous neighbours. What of the kids that don't come from loving homes?

This is up 40 percent on the same quarter in 2016 and appears to be down to sales of the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in China . CEO Tim Cook said a year ago that China would be a key to Apple's growth going forward.

Twitter user Kevin M Cruse pointed out that Trump Jr. didn't exactly get wealthy on his own.

Under the picture, two sentences: "I'm going to puncture the half of the treats for Chloe and give it to a child who will be stayed at home".

There is also of course, the irony that Halloween candy.is.well, literally a handout.

Trump Jr was not the first to use Halloween to make such a point about socialism.

But others criticised him for posting an image of his daughter to make a political point and questioned the effectiveness of his allegory.
