Presidential hopeful Donald Trump seemingly flunked geography if his latest Twitter gaffe is anything to go by. The Republican candidate for America’s top job was reacting to the news that a man wearing a fake suicide belt was shot dead in Paris while running towards a police station.
But his rant didn't have the impact he wished , when he put Paris in a different country.
Gaffe: Donald Trump seems to have his countries mixed up (Twitter)
He tweeted: “Man shot inside Paris police station. Just announced that terror threat is at highest level.
“Germany is a total mess - big crime. GET SMART!”
Twitter users were quick to jump on Trump and his tweet and ‘Paris is in Germany’ quickly became the latest trend on Twitter and other social media.
Obviously, he garnered a lot of derision... I can still hear the echoes of cyber jeers.
