An app called “Donald Daters,” specifically curated for MAGA-loving singles, had a bug that allowed outsiders to download the database of the 1,600 users who had already signed up when the app launched, according to a Monday TechCrunch report.

A security researcher was reportedly able to access users’ names, pictures and messages, as well as take over accounts. The app was pulled offline when its maker learned of the bug.

The app was created to connect “American-based singles community connecting lovers, friends, and Trump supporters alike,” according to TechCrunch.

According to a Politico Magazine feature, some young Trumpsters have found love elusive on more traditional dating apps, which may have prompted the switch to a smaller, redder pool.
