Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been using a Republican education app to make education-related statements on Twitter.
The Washington Post first reported that Trump was using the Republican National Committee’s National Education Lottery app to encourage people to register to vote.
The app’s description of the game reads, “The National Education lottery is the national education lottery that provides millions of people with a chance to win $1,000 and to become eligible for a free education voucher.”
The app also claims to have “a massive selection of opportunities for people to participate” in the lottery.
The RNC app also features a “Vote for Donald Trump” page that features an image of Trump, along with a message that reads, “#VoteForDonaldTRUMP.”
The page also features an ad for the Republican Party’s presidential primary, with the caption, “Vote Trump in the November general election.”
Trump is not the only GOP candidate using an app to try to encourage young voters to vote for him.
In October, Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus told the Wall Street Journal that he plans to introduce a national education plan in the coming weeks.
“We’ll get the national plan out in the next two weeks, and it will be in three parts,” Priebus told WSJ.
“It’s going to be a lot of stuff, a lot that’s going on.”
Priebus has made no mention of using the RNC app to solicit votes for Trump, but in a previous interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Priebus said he would “probably” use the app to urge young people to support Trump in a general election.
The GOP’s presidential nominee has said he intends to focus on boosting the number of college graduates and low-income Americans, two groups that historically have been more likely to vote Republican.
The Trump campaign did not respond to The Hill’s request for comment.
