    The sleeping bags and debris seen in the video tweeted by the president’s son turned out to be the result of people camping to see a BTS performance, and were promptly cleaned up after the concert was over.

    The oldest son of US President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr, has landed in hot water after he launched a verbal attack on New York City Bill de Blasio while apparently neglecting to properly check the tools he used for his attack.

    Tweeting a short video of a sidewalk in NYC covered in trash, Trump Jr claimed that de Blasio should "clean up his backyard first" rather than "do a PR stunt 'run' for President".

    ​"This video from this morning should tell you all you need to know about his 'leadership'. What a clown show!!!" he added.

    As it turns out, however, the scene which caught the president’s son’s attention was actually the aftermath of people camping to see a BTS performance in Central Park, not to mention that all the trash was promptly cleaned up by the fans themselves after the concert was over.

    ​Many social media users seemed unamused with Trump Jr, and quickly stepped forward to give him a piece of their mind.

    ​Others, however, used this opportunity to criticise the current state of affairs in New York City and its mayor instead.
