Donald Trump's in the country. Nope, we are not talking of US Prez Donald Trump, but his eldest son Donald Trump Jr — why do they have the same name, bruh?

Trump Jr is here as a businessman, to basically promote Trump Towers in the country. In short, he's here to sell luxury apartments.

During a business discussion, where he was answering why he's keen on investing in India, Trump Jr had a foot-in-the-mouth moment (umm, is that genetic? #justasking). While talking about the 'unique' Indian spirit, he remarked that he's seen even the poorest of the poor here have a smile on their faces — huh? So poor people don't smile in other parts of the world? And, how did he know that the 'poorest of the poor' here have a smile on their faces? By interacting with billionaire businessmen?

Here, sample this.


His words left a huge impact, and in no time, he was slammed by numerous netizens for his tasteless, ignorant remark.









But someone jumped to his defence and said he was misquoted.



But we did hear him say those words. Looks like verbal diarrhoea runs in the family. If the Trumps want that covfefe with Indians, they should stop patronising and get a grip on 'em words. It's like they don't even realise what they say. #Facepalm
