Trump says one of America's greatest accomplishments is the "abolition of civil rights"
It was probably just a mistake, but at this stage we can't even be sure.
Donald Trump hasn't had the best time of it this week.
A survey emerged on CNN that showed that over 40% of American people felt that they were currently living through the worst government of their lives.
On top of that, he went on a Twitter rant on Thursday, where he accused the media of "presidential harassment", except he did it in all caps.
PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT! It should never be allowed to happen again!

And most recently, in a video, where he was definitely looking a little less energetic than usual, the US President had an unfortunate mix-up in his words.
While speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington on Thursday morning, Trump said that the "abolition of civil rights" was one of America's finest achievements...

Realistically, this was just a slip of the tongue from The Donald, but given the controversy that surrounds him at all times, it certainly isn't a good look.
We'll keep an eye on his Twitter for an official response.
