Don Jr Uses Old Trump Photo To Hammer Ocasio-Cortez's Socialist Agenda

Share

Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme on Instagram slamming Democratic Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her socialist agenda.

Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist, has plans to push costly socialist programs in the House.

She is a strong proponent of a costly single-payer healthcare model and wants to pay for it with harsh tax increases.

Ocasio-Cortez proposed raising the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent, which is significantly higher than much of the developed world, including Canada, Sweden and Denmark.

Trump Jr. poked fun at her ridiculous economic policies with a meme on Instagram.

The image featured Ocasio-Cortez with the caption “Why are you so afraid of a socialist economy?” Beneath Ocasio-Cortez is an image of President Donald Trump with a caption saying “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”

Trump Jr. has over 1.5 million Instagram followers and the meme was liked over 70,000 times.

Do you think Democrats will continue moving left?

The image seemed to be in reference to the negative consequences of Venezuela’s disastrous socialist policies, which has destroyed businesses and left its citizens starving.

Some of Venezuela’s starving citizens have even resorted to eating dogs, cats, and other animals, according to a 2016 report by USA Today.

“People are hunting dogs and cats in the streets, and pigeons in the plazas to eat,” Ramon Muchacho, former mayor of the Caracas district of Chacao, said at the time.

Of course, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t respond directly to Trump Jr.’s jab at her socialist policies. Instead, she threatened Trump Jr. with a subpoena.

“I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter. “Please, keep it coming Jr – it’s definitely a ‘very, very large brain’ idea to troll a member of a body that will have subpoena power in a month.”

That’s quite a socialist response from Ocasio-Cortez. Instead of attempting to engage in a political discourse, she would rather threaten her political opponents in the same vein as Venezuela’s ruling socialist party.

It’s sad to see the Democratic Party succumb to socialism.
