Republican Party presidential nominee Donald Trump took to Reddit Wednesday, inviting people to “Ask Me Anything.”

In response, users, who ranged between the ages of 15 and 45, submitted more than 24,000 questions. As one might expect, questions included jokes — “Mr. Trump, Are you tired of winning?” — as well as those more focused on policy.

But Reddit users also wielded hard-hitting policy questions: “What will you do as President to ensure that myself and others not only enjoy the security of having health insurance, but also afford to keep it.”

Trump replied that he would repeal Obamacare and allow people to buy insurance across state lines and increase competition in the health insurance industry.

Highlights included:

Question: Hello Mr. Trump, as you may know there are a lot of young Bernie Sanders supporters out there who have become disillusioned by DNC and by the policy positions of Secretary Clinton. What is the most important thing you would like to convey about yourself and your policy positions to the people who voted for Bernie in the primary but are now considering either staying home or voting third party in November?

Answer: the-realDonaldTrump45
Though Bernie is exhausted and has given up on his revolution, many of his voters still want to keep up the fight. I expect that millions of Bernie voters will refuse to vote for Hillary because of her support for the War in Iraq, the invasion of Libya, NAFTA and TPP, and of course because she is totally bought and sold by special interests. She and her husband have been paid millions and millions by global corporations and powerful interests who will control her every decision. She is their puppet, and they pull the strings.
We welcome with open arms all voters who want an honest government and to fix our rigged system so it works for the people. This includes fixing one of Bernie’s biggest issues, our terrible trade deals that strip our country of its jobs and wealth.

Question: Mr. Trump, what do you feel is the greatest issue facing young Americans today?

Answer: the-realDonaldTrump45
The question most young people ask me is about the rising cost of education, terrible student debt and total lack of jobs. Youth unemployment is through the roof, and millions more are underemployed. It’s a total disaster! I will create millions of new jobs, reform our education system, and work to free young Americans from the awful burden of debt.

Question: Mr. Trump, reports estimate that 90% of US media is owned by 6 companies. How will you, as president, tackle the protected class of media elites without stepping on the first amendment rights of average Americans?

Answer: the-realDonaldTrump45
I have been very concerned about media bias and the total dishonesty of the press. I think new media is a great way to get out the truth.

Question 1: We firmly believe Hillary will try and steal this election through vote fraud, especially given recent events. What is your campaign doing to ensure that we have a fair election?
Question 2: What role should NASA play in helping to Make America Great Again?

Answer: the-realDonaldTrump45
1 – Voter fraud is always a serious concern and authorities must be vigilant from keeping those from voting that are not authorized to do so.
2 – Honestly I think NASA is wonderful! America has always led the world in space exploration.

Question: Mr. Trump, what is your plan for reducing or removing the influence of money on politics?

Answer: the-realDonaldTrump45
Keeping Crooked Hillary Clinton out of the White House!
