As Americans are heading to the polls to choose their next president, we take a look at the five most embarrassing gaffes of Republican candidate Donald Trump :

1. On naming his foreign policy advisors

During an interview with NBC last year Trump was grilled as to who he goes to for advice, this is what he had to say:

“Well I really watch the shows. You really see a lot of great, you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows, and you have the generals and you have certain people that you like.”

2. He was given a $1m loan

On NBC’s “Today Show” he had this to say: “It has not been easy for me … My father gave me a small loan of a $1m.”

Trump said he had to pay the $1m back to his father with interest. He was criticised as some would argue that being given a $1m loan would make your life easier.

3. The time Trump said Muslims aren’t welcome

A statement read from the Trump Campaign said this about Muslims entering the US: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

4. On the Russians hacking Hillary Clinton’s emails

At a news conference in Doral, Florida Trump encouraged Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails after she had her own personal server as secretary of state: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens.”

5. He accused Obama of being the founder of Isis

Trump made the accusation against President Barack Obama during a Florida rally. He said in an interview with ABC News: “Isis is honouring President Obama. He is the founder of Isis. He founded Isis. And I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton.”
