Clinton invites Facebook users to 'Trump Yourself' with app

"Major loser," ''total lightweight" and "fat pig" are among the Donald Trump phrases Facebook users can brand their profile photos using a new app from Hillary Clinton's campaign.

The presumptive Democratic nominee has launched a tongue-in-cheek "Trump Yourself" app. It allows users to place filters containing an insulting phrase from the Republican presidential nominee over their profile pictures.

The pictures appear similar to ones created by Facebook to show support for various causes.

To use the app, users give their email addresses and other contact information to the Clinton campaign through Facebook then receive an email thanking them for registering for an account on the campaign's website.

The Clinton campaign says about 400,000 Facebook users have signed up for the app since its launch Thursday.
