Donald Trump will join the ranks of thousands of others on Tuesday night, as the GOP candidate will live-tweet the vice presidential debate. Trump made the announcement earlier in the afternoon, and started posting tweets 30 minutes before the debate between Republican candidate Mike Pence and Democratic candidate Tim Kaine.

“I will be live-tweeting the V.P. Debate. Very exciting! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump wrote on his Twitter account.

Trump also took aim at CNN, as he often does, for its pre-debate coverage. “Wow, @CNN is so negative. Their panel is a joke, biased and very dumb. I’m turning to @FoxNews where we get a fair shake! Mike will do great.”

Trump’s Twitter account has been a constant source of controversy throughout the campaign. Last week, the candidate was criticized for his early morning tweets about former Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado, who Trump claimed participated in a “sex tape” (no such tape exists).

The VP debate starts at 9 p.m. ET
