Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Just Created a Way to Make Money From Donald Trump’s Tweets

'Troll Trump' fundraising tool is now live

Donald Trump's tweets from now until Election Day are about to start delivering money directly to Hillary Clinton's campaign.

A new tool, Troll Trump, lets supporters sign up to automatically donate 50 cents, $1, $3, $5, $10 or other amounts every time the Republican presidential nominee tweets. (Given his past habits on the platform, that could turn out to be a pretty vast treasure trove of donations for the home stretch to Nov. 8.) The tool's landing page populates a new Trump tweet each time the site is refreshed to offer a sampling of the candidate's social media style.

"Show Donald that his unhinged rhetoric comes at a cost," according to the Clinton campaign's website. "Sign up to donate to Hillary's campaign every time Donald tweets!" 

The signup also comes with a pledge:

"Hey Donald,

I pledge to donate ____ to Hillary's campaign every time you tweet because I'm sick and tired of your hateful comments about the American people.

Happy tweeting!"

The idea apparently was inspired by a tweet by Matt Bellassai, a former BuzzFeed editor and social media star, who made a joke on Twitter threatening to donate to the campaign every time Trump tweets. (When the tool went live, Teddy Goff, a digital strategist with the Clinton campaign, tweeted Bellassai a thank-you.)
