Reddit’s userbase generally skews to the left, but there are a number of pro-Trump subreddits.
Donald Trump will open himself up to Reddit users when he hosts an “Ask Me Anything” session on the popular discussion board website this week.
The event, announced in a release this morning, starts Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. ET, on the subreddit thread r/The_Donald, which is supportive of Trump, as opposed to the traditional subreddit for AMAs, r/IAmA.

During an “Ask Me Anything,” Reddit users submit written questions for the host answer on the site.
The move marks a new frontier in social media engagement for the Republican presidential nominee, who has already proven himself unusually willing to engage with users on Twitter.
