Trump Jr. also kept his Halloween costume in the family, going as his father. "It's never to early to teach her about socialism", the president's eldest son tweeted on Tuesday along with a photo of his daughter dressed as a police officer and holding a bucket of candies. Never too early to teach her about her grandfather's tax code. "Some of us went trick or treating with a UNICEF box donation box".
To which Trump Jr. replied: "That's cute".
Yet Stevenson agreed with Trump Jr. on one point - that the October holiday is a good moment to share life lessons with children: "When it comes to Halloween", Stevenson said, "I do think it's a great opportunity to teach kids about a well-functioning democracy with a successful market economy". "One of my kids loves chocolate and the other one hates it so they make a lot of welfare improving trades, like in any good market economy".
Several Trump supporters have previously joked about dressing up as self-described socialist Bernie Sanders and many expressed their support for Trump Jr's interpretation.

Rihanna puts her special sauce all over the up beat track as well. "You're going to like this s**t we're going to release". The Todd Tourso + Scott Cudmore-directed video opens with Rihanna shaving a woman's head in a hotel room.
There is also of course, the irony that Halloween candy.is.well, literally a handout.
But aside from immortalizing his child in such a classless fashion, Trump's analogy fails to ask itself where Chloe got all that candy in the first place.
But others criticised him for posting an image of his daughter to make a political point and questioned the effectiveness of his allegory. "Gosh how is this even possible to brag about on Twitter?" tweeted @maelagam. What of the sick kids? "Adults train them out of this behavior over time".
