President Donald Trump has most of the awards money can buy.
But does he have a Grammy like Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama?
Maybe he can get a songwriting nomination after his latest bon mots have been turned into a song.
On Wednesday, President Trump was photographed with handwritten Sharpie notes clutched in his hand during remarks to the press.
Trump appears to believe that his statement just now will be “the final word from the pres of the U.S.” https://t.co/gQ7J0pn8Jq— Sam Stein (@Sam Stein)1574269863.0

But some found Trump's repeated "I want nothing" and "quid pro quo" poetic.

Inspired by actor and comedian Patton Oswalt's detection of a Morrissey vibe, at least three Twitter denizens created songs to satisfy Oswalt's muse.
First to share with Oswalt was Appa the Flying Bison (@victoryrhoad) with this little ditty you can listen to here:
Inspired by @pattonoswalt , here's Trump's notes as if Morrissey wrote them into song, performed by me https://t.co/Emka5wVwzM— Appa the Flying 🅱ison (@Appa the Flying 🅱ison)1574289925.0
Oswalt was in awe.

Next up was RuPaul Giamatti (@BenJamminAsh) with their take you can hear here:

Oswalt again appreciated the effort.
Another one! Holy moly these are amazing! https://t.co/kiOk3aGEE6— Patton Oswalt (@Patton Oswalt)1574357126.0
And the last—so far—was from Jose Galvez (@josegalvezmusic) who included how long it took to create and record the version you can listen to here:

Oswalt seemed to underestimate the power of suggestion on Twitter.
Ask—or even suggest—and ye shall receive.
ANOTHER one! These are all so good!!! https://t.co/q2WkTUo1pe— Patton Oswalt (@Patton Oswalt)1574389990.0
People are on board with the presidential remixes.

So, maybe no songwriting Grammy for Trump. But some definite laughs for the internet.
Now, does anyone know how to get these to Morrissey?
