Every time President Trump tweets, he shows where he stands on any given issue.
Using that logic, there's now a Twitter bot that takes the president's tweets and puts them into an "official statement" format.

The bot, @RealPressSecBot, checks Trump's Twitter account every five minutes, according to its Twitter bio. If there are new tweets from @realDonaldTrump, the bot spits out a new "statement."
The bot's tweeted for the first time ever on Sunday:

@RealPressSecBot was created by Russel Neiss, a Jewish educator and technologist who has made other bots.

I've actually never been more excited for the President to tweet.....— Russel Neiss (@russelneiss) June 4, 2017
According to @RealPressSecBot's Twitter bio, Neiss got the idea from Pat Cunnane, a former Obama aide.
For context - because he's President - all of Trump's Tweets should be mocked up in the correct Presidential statement format. It's telling. pic.twitter.com/UZ7d2WJRs4— Pat Cunnane (@PatCunnane) June 4, 2017
