(Newser) – When Donald Trump gave out fellow candidate Lindsey Graham's personal phone number, Graham publicly destroyed his phone. When Gawker pulled the same stunt on Trump himself, he responded in much different fashion: Trump turned the phone's greeting into a campaign ad, as NBC's Frank Thorp demonstrates on Twitter. In fact, Trump is now tweeting the number and encouraging people to call.

“With your help and support, together we can make America truly great again," says Trump in the message. "Visit me at Twitter @realDonaldTrump and check out my campaign website at Hope to see you on the campaign trail. We’re going to do it!” Meanwhile, Trump continues to lead the latest polls by a mile, including this new one by Bloomberg. (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
