Donald Trump Jr. took aim at socialism Tuesday in a tweet regarding his daughter's Halloween candy that has drawn widespread reaction.

The President's eldest son posted a photo of his daughter, Chloe, dressed as a police officer with a bucket containing candy.

"I'm going to take half of Chloe's candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home," Trump Jr. captioned the photo. "It's never to (sic) early to teach her about socialism."

The Tweet had almost 58,000 likes and more than 18,000 retweets Wednesday morning. The post drew widespread reaction.

Trump Jr. is not the first to make such a point about socialism, and many supported his point, BBC News noted.

Others picked apart the joke and took jabs at the Trump family.

Some criticized Trump Jr. for his understanding of socialism while others pointed out that the concept of handing out to children over Halloween was an act of kindness.

Celebrities also weighed in with their opinions. Among them was Harry Potter author JK Rowling.

Trump Jr. is an avid Twitter user, much like his father, and has come under fire on more than one occasion for controversial posts.

Most recently, he used Hillary Clinton's birthday on Thursday as an opportunity to take a dig at her, Newsweek noted.

Referencing a tweet posted by the former Democratic presidential nominee last year, in which she announced herself as the future president, Trump Jr. said "a year later the arrogance and entitlement in this tweet is exactly why it was never going to happen."
