Salma Hayek has ridiculed Donald Trump’s most recent blunder in an acerbic tweet also mocking his immigration policy.

Appearing at a rally in Buffalo, New York on Monday, the GOP frontrunner referred to the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre as 7/11 - a popular convenience store in the US.

“I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Centre right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action,” he said.

Trump confuses 9-11 with 7-11

While Trump may have continued his speech without correcting himself, various news outlets and people made sure he wasn’t going to forget this awkward mix-up in a hurry.

Cue Hayek, who responded with this tweet:
