Donald Trump hosts “Ask Me Anything” forum on Reddit

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hosted a Reddit AMA (short for Ask Me Anything) session on Wednesday night as he flew to Toledo, Ohio for a campaign rally.

The questions and answers were posted on “The_Donald” subreddit, which has over 180,000 subscribers, instead of “IAmA,” where most high-profile AMAs are hosted. (Hillary Clinton’s subreddit page has about 21,000 subscribers.)

News 3 has compiled a full list of the questions and their answers below.

1 – Voter fraud is always a serious concern and authorities must be vigilant from keeping those from voting that are not authorized to do so.

2 – Honestly I think NASA is wonderful! America has always led the world in space exploration.

Mr. Trump,

Reports estimate that 90% of US media is owned by 6 companies. The US mass media has fused into a gross alliance with big business and big government as this election has shown more than any other. The dishonest media is rigging our democracy with a radical agenda that divides Americans and causes nothing but sensationalism and hatred at the expense of the USA. They are killing our country for ratings and profit, with impunity.

How will you, as president, tackle this protected class of media elites without stepping on the first amendment rights of average Americans?

Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump

I have been very concerned about media bias and the total dishonesty of the press. I think new media is a great way to get out the truth.

Question:

America has a proud tradition of stealing the most brilliant and talented people from countries around the world for ourselves. Albert Einstein, Wernher von Braun, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Melania Trump… the list goes on and on. In recent years, however, H-1B visa abuse has become rampant.

A program meant bring truly exceptional talent to America has been twisted by globalist politicians and corporations, allowing low-cost, short term labor to steal jobs from everyday Americans and take everything they learn back to their home countries. Will you curb H-1B abuse and make sure visas are going to people who want to become American, stay American, and make America great?

Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump 

I have put forward a detailed plan for H-1B reform to protect American workers which can viewed on the immigration paper on my website. My plan is the exact opposite of Crooked Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Trump, as a self-employed young American, my health insurance costs have skyrocketed under Obamacare. Paying close to $300 a month with a $6,000 deductible is a challenge as I try and grow my business. What will you do as President to ensure that myself and others can not only enjoy the security of having health insurance, but also afford to keep it?

Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump

One of the first things I will do is to repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare. I will put forward an amazing new plan, which will include many reforms, such as letting people buy insurance across state lines, increasing choice and competition, and bargaining for better, cheaper drug prices.

Question:

During your rapid fire Press Q&A this morning, you mentioned the hundreds of days it’s been since Hillary’s last press conference.

What do you think is/are the reason(s) for Hillary refusing to hold any press conferences for such a huge amount of time?

follow up,

Do you think Hillary will attempt to decrease the number of times she has to debate you like she did to Bernie during the Democratic Primary, or even avoid debating you altogether like she’s avoided press conferences altogether this year?


Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump 

Crooked Hillary Clinton will not do press conferences because she cannot explain her illegally deleted 33,000 emails, or her disaster in Libya, or her role pushing TPP (which she would 100% approve if she got the chance), or her support for a 550% increase in Syrian refugees, etc.

You’ve expressed your support and appreciation for police.

What would say to a young college student like myself who is considering a job in law enforcement, but might have been discouraged by the recent attacks on police?

Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump 

We will always stand with and support our nation’s amazing police. There is nothing more honorable then serving your community and your country as a law enforcement officer. My administration will protect those who protect us. Thank you to all the incredible police officers in our country tonight.

Question:

platypapaya 

Hello Mr. Trump, as you may know there are a lot of young Bernie Sanders supporters out there who have become disillusioned by both the conduct of the DNC and by the policy positions of Secretary Clinton (many of these Bernie Sanders frequent this site). What is the most important thing you would like to convey about yourself and your policy positions to the people who voted for Bernie in the primary but are now considering either staying home or voting third party in November?

Trump response: 

the-realDonaldTrump 

Though Bernie is exhausted and has given up on his revolution, many of his voters still want to keep up the fight. I expect that millions of Bernie voters will refuse to vote for Hillary because of her support for the War in Iraq, the invasion of Libya, NAFTA and TPP, and of course because she is totally bought and sold by special interests. She and her husband have been paid millions and millions by global corporations and powerful interests who will control her every decision. She is their puppet, and they pull the strings.

We welcome with open arms all voters who want an honest government and to fix our rigged system so it works for the people. This includes fixing one of Bernie’s biggest issues, our terrible trade deals that strip our country of its jobs and wealth.

Mr. Trump, what do you feel is the greatest issue facing young Americans today?

Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump

The question most young people ask me is about the rising cost of education, terrible student debt and total lack of jobs. Youth unemployment is through the roof, and millions more are underemployed. It’s a total disaster! I will create millions of new jobs, reform our education system, and work to free young Americans from the awful burden of debt.

Question:

trexroarroar 

Hello Mr. Trump. I’m 29 years old, registered Libertarian and have voted that way my entire life. I feel closely aligned with what the party stands for, and am passionate about it. However, this election I am starting to think that, while I think a Libertarian candidate is what’s best for America long term, that you may be what America needs right now. I also feel like you care about this country so, so much, and you want what’s best for it. This is a difficult decision for me, because on the issues I seem to either firmly believe or strongly disagree with what you have to say. I think you may be the best possible candidate for our economy, but I do fear some of your international policies,

I know that I am not the only 3rd party voter that feels this way. So my question to you is, what do you say to people like me who are on the fence about voting 3rd party(Johnson/Stein) or for you?

Thank you very much for doing this AMA.

Trump response:

the-realDonaldTrump 

Americans in every party are tired of our rigged system and corrupt politicians, and want to reform our government so it no longer benefits the powerful at the expense of everyone else. They know I will fix it so it works for them and their families. Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. My message is that things have to change, and they have to change right now.

We have to change a foreign policy that has led us to one economic disaster after another, and an economic policy that has failed our poorest citizens. We will never fix a rigged system by relying on the people who rigged it in the first place.

I am going to return the government to the people.

Together, we will Make America Great Again.
