Despite all odds, Donald Trump is still leading the pack of the GOP presidential candidates. While he’s yet to give many (any?) specifics on his promises to “make America great again” and give the country “so many wins” we’ll get tired of winning, Trump is still a favorite among a sizable chunk of Republicans.
Monday, Trump decided to kick off the week by taking questions from Twitter users under the hashtag, #AskTrump, and like failed Q&As before it, the whole thing quickly backfired.
Take a look.

Of COURSE the #AskTrump hashtag backfired. It was supposed to. Jesus Christ on a publicity stunt, guys.

Despite the deluge, Trump did answer a few serious questions, like this one about what he’d do his first day in office (God forbid…).

No word on how he’d close the borders, but, like the rest of his policies, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
