This Twitter bot was created to mimic businessman, politician and television personality Donald Trump -- and is eerily accurate. The artificially intelligent version of 'The Donald' is "a Recurrent Neural Network trained on Donald Trump's speech and debate transcripts."

Created by Bradley Hayes, the Twitter bot is set at a 3rd Grade level. At first the text was randomly generated, but through machine learning the algorithm is now tweeting gems like "Great manufacturing, bring back our jobs, bring back our manufacturing, because my file, you know, I don’t need anybody’s money. ..."

The Twitter account @DeepDrumpf is a nod to a scathing segment that appeared recently on TV program Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, where the writer and comedian called for a return to Trump's ancestral name 'Drumpf' to distance the man from the brand and worsen Trump's chances at winning the Republican nomination for the Presidency of the United States.
