In an attempt to reach young voters, Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump, presidential candidates for the White House, have gone out of there way to reference Pokemon Go in recent campaign speeches and attack ads.

During a campaign stop yesterday in Annandale, Virginia, Clinton joked that the app could make a mobile game to increase voter turnout. “I don’t know who created Pokémon Go, but I’m trying to figure out how we get them to have Pokémon Go to the Polls!”

Donald Trump took the opportunity to attack Clinton by calling the app, “Crooked Hilary No,”  and imagined her as a Pokémon to be captured.

According to Polygon, Trump posted video on his Facebook page, but took it down shortly after. The required “I’m Donald Trump and I approve this message” isn’t found in the beginning detailing that it was paid for by the Trump campaign.
