Donald Trump Jr. took to social media on Thursday to share a meme involving his father, President Donald Trump, and Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 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 emojis.
As of Friday morning, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez said they have no comment regarding the meme, according to the Washington Post. The representative-elect, who became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress after winning her race for a U.S. House seat in New York's 14th District in November's midterm elections, is a self-described democratic socialist.
