UPDATE: 8:35 p.m. EDT -- Donald Trump answered a question about Hillary Clinton's refusal to hold a press conference by calling her "crooked." It was one of many questions Trump answered Wednesday night on Reddit in a moderated forum. 

He wrote: "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."

Vice News summed up the event: "Donald Trump's Reddit AMA was not all that great." USA Today concluded: "Donald Trump’s 'Ask Me Anything' Reddit event turned out to be more like, ask me some things and the curators may delete them."

UPDATE: 8:04 p.m. EDT -- Faced with hundreds of questions, Donald Trump kept his answers short Wednesday night during a Reddit’ "Ask Me Anything" session. He dished on new media and why NASA should continue to led the world in space exploration.

"One of the first things I will do is to repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare," he posted. "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."

In response to another question, he added: "Voter fraud is always a serious concern and authorities must be vigilant from keeping those from voting that are not authorized to do so."

UPDATE: 7:46 p.m. EDT -- Donald Trump answered Wednesday night a question about immigration reform on Reddit from Milo Yiannopoulos, a technology editor for the conservative news site Breitbart. Trump promised to help skilled workers obtain H-1B visas, a non-immigrant work permit. Yiannopoulos was recently banned from Twitter for hate speech, triggering a national debate on racism and free speech.  

UPDATE: 7:27 p.m. EDT -- Donald Trump's "Ask Me Anything" question-and -answer session on Reddit Wednesday night drew questions about his potential cabinet and Hillary Clinton's national security experience. Some of the questions so far include: "What's your take on Hillary Clinton's Armenian Genocide denial, and will you use it against her? Please help us Christians in the Middle-East because Clinton sure as heck won't." and "Mr. Trump, What is your favorite Meme of yourself?" 

Trump told supporters he might be slow to provide answers. "I'm doing this in flight to visit the great people of Toledo, OH, so Internet connection might be spotty -- I promise you, I'll answer all the questions I can. I want to do BIG things for America and as your President, I WILL Make America Great Again!" he wrote.

Original story:

Donald Trump will take questions from the internet Wednesday night in Reddit's popular "Ask Me Anything" feature.

Trump's fan page on the site, r/The_Donald, has become a viral sensation attracting tens of millions of pageviews a month during his unusual presidential campaign. It's a favorite among young males who like to argue about gender, race and immigration. Popular discussions include "So if you jump the fence to the Democrat Convention, you get arrested. If you jump the fence on the Mexican border, you get invited to speak at the convention" and "Couldn’t find a single American flag at the DNC. But I did find a Palestinian flag." It boasts more than 180,000 subscribers. There are only 21,000 for Hillary Clinton’s subreddit, Wired reported. 

"First Reddit ignored our sub," r/The_Donald moderator Viking83 wrote in a post announcing the AMA. "Then Reddit laughed at our sub. Then Reddit fought our sub with Hillary's paid haters. And now we are winning with our God Emperor, the Nimble Navigator, Mr. Donald J. Trump!"

"It's a great group with lots of millennials from all different walks of life," Reddit user JCM267, the 32-year old founder of r/The_Donald told NBC News. "It's huge for the future of the country, because if you look around the Internet, everywhere you go is another safe space for the left enforcing their norms and views and political correctness."

To keep out Trump's many critics, moderators are only allowing established users to pose questions.  The site read Wednesday:

"We would remind everyone, including media here that we are not a part of the campaign, but we love our community and we will take all measures necessary to protect it.

Yes, we will ban troublemakers

Yes, we will remove trolling comments

Yes, we mean it when we say we'll throw anyone over our walls who fails to behave themselves

Finally: the next President of the United States is coming today. Can you guys believe it?"
