The seemingly never-ending onslaught of content from the US president’s Twitter account can be draining, to say the least.

Luckily, author Aaron Gillies has offered up some much-needed relief.

Mr Trump has a habit of punctuating tweets with a final syllable or two, which apparently lends itself spectacularly to the tune of Blur’s anthem, “Parklife”.

Other Twitter users were keen to join in.

This isn't the first time that Mr Trump's phrasing has drawn comparisons to the '90s hit.

In February 2018, Lee Zacharia actually punctuated the entirety of the song to a series of capped-up Trump tweets.

Mr Zacharia continued to fill in the blanks with phrases like: "TREASON", "AMERICA FIRST" and "VETO".

While this probably isn't what Damon Albarn and co had in mind when they penned the tune, the singer is famously not a fan of the property tycoon.

Gorillaz fifth album, Humanz, was apparently in part inspired by Mr Trump's electoral victory.

In 2017, Mr Albarn told Billboard:

Trump’s ascension was one of the sources of energy that we meditated on, when it was like, ‘Ahh, that’s ridiculous, that could never happen.’

However, the musician decided to cut out any mention of Trump on the album, so as not to "give the most famous man on earth any more fame".

Given the POTUS is practically inescapable at this point, it might be worth someone with sound-editing skills turning this into a full-blown reality.

"Witch Hunt" for song of the summer, anyone?
