|Trump points to the heavens while talking about a steelworker's father - who is still alive|
According to The Sun UK, the US President made the cringe-worthy gaffe while hosting Pennsylvania steel workers at the White House following his decision to impose tariffs on steel imports.
Worker Scott Sauritch told the blunder-prone billionaire that his father lost his job because of foreign imports.
Addressing Sauritch in front of reporters, Trump said: "What's your father's name?"
Sauritch replied: "Herman."
Trump added: "Well, your father Herman is looking down. He's very proud of you right now."
But to the Republican’s embarrassment, Sauritch said: "Oh, he's still alive."
Amid laughter in the room, Trump said: "He is? Well then, he's even more proud of you."
The gaffe happened during an event promoting Trump’s controversial policy of imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium imports.
The steelworkers attended to speak in favour of the measure which would involve hikes - including 25 per cent on steel imports and ten per cent on aluminium – which would take effect in 15 days.
