"We are happy to add Trump’s cell phone number to the body of public knowledge."

Gawker has published Donald Trump's cell phone number, telling readers to "ask him about his important ideas."

Trump famously released Senator Lindsey Graham's at a campaign rally last month, asking the audience to go ahead and call him. "In the spirit of open and fair political debate, we now bring you Trump’s number," writes Gawker author Sam Biddle.

He continues, "Since Trump, in his considered political judgment, has decided that opening up a direct, personal channel of communications between his supporters and his primary opponents is a noble campaign tactic, we think it’s only fair and right that Republican primary voters be able to reach out to Trump himself." 

"If it is the case — as Trump’s release of Graham’s number implicitly argues — that our political discourse improves when voters can ring up candidates on their private cell phones, then we are happy to add Trump’s cell phone number to the body of public knowledge," writes Biddle. Trump's cell phone number is published both in the post and on the photograph accompanying the article.

Biddle even provides readers with sample questions to ask Trump. "Does he still think Mexicans are out to rape you? Speaking of rape, does he think it’s possible to rape your own wife?" and "What about breast milk does he find so disgusting?" 

After Trump released his phone number, Graham destroyed his cell phone on camera.

When The Hollywood Reporter tried Trump's phone number, the line was busy.
