Donald Trump Jr. took to social media on Thursday to share a meme involving his father President Donald Trump and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to suggest her policies would drive Americans to resort to eating their own dogs.
Trump’s eldest son shared a two-panel meme to his Instagram that features a photograph of Ocasio-Cortez, 29, asking why people are afraid of a socialist economy in the top panel, and a photo of the president answering her question below, HuffPost noted.
“Why are you afraid of a socialist economy,” the caption on Ocasio-Cortez’s photo reads, while the caption on Trump’s photo responds, “Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them.”
The post, which he shared with his 1.5 million Instagram followers, received 54,300 likes and more than 1,800 comments within 11 hours of being posted.
“It’s funny cuz it’s true!!!” Trump Jr. wrote in the caption, paired with a series of rolling on the floor laughing emoji and U.S. flags.
