On many occasions, quotes from Donald Trump’s speeches and debate transcripts have sounded like a comedy script; but a new Twitterbot has taken things to the next level.

The Twitter account, dubbed @DeepDrumpf, uses a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) trained on Trump’s speech and debate transcripts.

According to Mashable, the project was started by Bradley Hayes, a post-doctoral researcher at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). The account uses an algorithm to create sentences based on Trump’s speech structure during events.

“According to Hayes, ‘the algorithm essentially learns an underlying structure from all the data it gets, and then comes up with different combinations of the data that reflect the structure that it was taught,'” read the Mashable article.

The result is a hilariously realistic interpretation of things Trump might actually say.
