PITTSBURGH -- It seems that Donald Trump may not know Joe Paterno died.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Trump asked about Joe Paterno and said, "How's Joe Paterno? We gonna bring that back?"

Paterno died in 2012.

Perhaps he was referring to the Paterno statue, but that didn't stop many people from Tweeting their confusion over the comments.

Others pointed out that Trump mentioned Paterno, the former Penn State coach, in Pittsburgh: the home of the University of Pittsburgh.

A Trump campaign official later clarified Donald Trump meant the statue of Joe Paterno. It was removed from outside Beaver Stadium after the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
