Chat with Trump without an Alexa
Don’t have Alexa yet? No worries! The first iteration of this idea came in the form of a chatbot on a Telegram named Trumpobot. You can ask the Trumpobot about any topic and it will respond via text in the Telegram chat messaging app, in a browser, or mobile application.
Sign up for Telegram if you haven’t already, and chat with the Trumpobot here: //web.telegram.org/#/im?p=@Trumpobot
