Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump is about to rain on the Democratic National Convention (DNC) parade.
Trump will hold an “Ask Me Anything” event on the website Reddit on Wednesday. The event will begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday night. President Barack Obama, along with Vice President Joe Biden, will be speaking night.
Trump’s event is the ultimate political strategy. The media, which would normally focus all of its attention on the Convention, will now split its focus to see what Trump says during the Ask Me Anything. Depending on what he says and how he responds to questions, Trump could take some wind out of the DNC’s sails.
In addition, Reddit is home to many young voters, including those who have supported Bernie Sanders and now feel disenfranchised by a Democratic Party that worked behind the scenes to ensure former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got the nomination. If Trump strikes the right chord, he could connect with some of those younger voters and potentially woo them as they decide who they should pick in this year’s election.
Reddit has held Ask Me Anything, or AMA, events with a wide range of individuals, including celebrities and politicians. Sen. Bernie Sanders held an Ask Me Anything on Reddit last year.
