Donald Trump is not shy about using social media. The Republican nominee’s Twitter feed is constantly making headlines, both for its content and the unique style of his rhetoric. Now Trump is employing another popular tool for public figures to spread their message: The Reddit AMA.

This morning, the Trump campaign announced the candidate’s plans to host an “Ask Me Anything” event during the evening of the Democratic National Convention that President Obama and Vice President Biden are slotted to speak.

Redditor Viking83 is very excited about the Trump AMA.

During an AMA, the host gets to select which questions to answer, making it the perfect platform for a political candidate. Still, the responses Trump does choose to give are likely to be incendiary.

Technology is playing a critical role in this election — its scandals, in particular. On Friday, leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee revealed party officials tried to undercut the Bernie Sanders’ campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton.

The leak is now the second technology breach shrouding the Clinton campaign. The discovery of her private email server when she was Secretary of State continues to cast doubts about her trustworthiness.

Trump will likely seize the opportunity to take a few swings at Clinton on Reddit, as a shadow of controversy hangs over the Democratic National Convention. The AMA will begin Wednesday at 4 p.m. PST.
