  • Trump quotes now available on demand
     
    You can now get Donald Trump's best and worst quotes on demand via Facebook Messenger, thanks to a new presidential candidate bot known as BFF Trump.

    The bot greets users with the following message: “Hi. This is me, BFF Trump! I have opinions on everything from walls to women.

    It then proceeds to spit out quotes from the Republican candidate, ranging from his views on black youth to crying babies. Users can view the source of each quote by clicking the “Really?!” option. 

    BFF Trump was created by the advertising agency SS+K and bot platform Dexter to try to educate politically-disengaged millennials on what Trump has said in the past on women, immigration and other topics. The agency says it felt compelled to take action given how much is at stake in this year’s election.
