Can real estate mogul and United States presidential contender Donald Trump make bitcoin great again?

called Trumpchain doesn’t quite answer that question, but it does offer an amusing take on the controversial figure's bid for the White House.

The profile, described as a bot “that mixes Donald Trump speeches and tweets with comments from /r/bitcoin”, has undoubtedly become a vehicle for a bizarre mix of comedy and humor as it relates to the bitcoin space.

From the block size debate to China’s bitcoin mining ecosystem to Bitcoin Classic and Core, the parody account offers a level of commentary that is at times both crass and eyebrow raising – in good humor, of course.

Among the topics is China and Iran, which Trump often invokes during his campaign rallies.

Another popular Trump topic – the border between the US and Mexico – also receives a fresh take via Trumpchain.
