President Trump calls rapper Lil Pump 'Lil Pimp' in series of gaffes at rally
Easy mistake to make
President Trump mistakenly referred to rapper Lil Pump as 'Lil Pimp' in the final rally of his 2020 Presidential Election campaign in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Trump also joked that he won't speak to any of his children if he loses the election to Democrat nominee Joe Biden.
Trump said: "Speaking of sound music and other things, one of the big superstars of the world Little Pimp - there he is."
The 20-year-old rapper was called "one of the big superstars of the world" and then invited up onto stage by the President. Trump realised his mistake and then referred to the rapper by his real stage name, Lil Pump.
Lil Pump took to the stand to praise President Trump.
"Mr. President, I appreciate everything you've done for our country," said Lil Pump.
"You brought the troops home, and you're doing the right thing. MAGA 2020 - don't forget that!"
Lil Pump also urged Americans not to vote for Biden, whom he referred to as 'Sleepy Joe'. The rapper has threatened to leave the United States if Trump loses the election to Biden.
Real name Gazzy Garcia, he said he is going to "move the f*** out" of the United States and go "to Colombia" if Trump doesn't win the election.
"You don't see many Biden flags flying around on big-ass boats. And that speaks for itself.”

Lil Pump's breakthrough year as a musician was in 2018, when he was nominated for best new artist at the VMAs. He is perhaps best known for his 2017 hit 'Gucci Gang'.
Elsewhere in the Michigan rally, Trump played a compilation of Biden gaffes to his cheering audience, before commenting:
"You can't let this happen to our country" and "it puts more pressure on [Trump] running against a guy like this."
Trump also took to the stage to remind his supporters of how fortunate they are to have him.
"You are lucky I agreed to be your president," President Trump said.
