YouTuber Keemstar, who has over 4 million subscribers on his internet news show, DramaAlert, has gone on his Twitter account to reveal who he voted for in the past presidential elections.

On Tuesday, he tweeted, “I belong to no political party. I voted Obama 2008, Ron Paul 2012, Trump 2016.” He ended his tweet with, “I still believe those were the best candidates for office at that time. Trump is doing a great job!”

He’s been trolling Democrats all night, surprising fans by saying he voted for Barack Obama, Ron Paul, and Donald Trump for president in the past three presidential elections.
