jQuery .on('click', function()) not working with bootstrap-datetimepicker

I'm kinda new to using jQuery and I'm using Bootstrap DateTimePicker to display a calendar and I want to retrieve the currently selected date but for some reason the .on('click') function doesn't seem to work when I click on the days.

This is what the html code looks like:

<div style="overflow:hidden;">
<div class="form-group">
<div class="row">
<div class="col-md-8">
<div id="datetimepicker"></div>

And what I would like to do would be something like:

$(document).ready(function() {
$('#datetimepicker').on('click', '.day', function() {
// Get the selected date.
var date = $(this).val();

The bootstrap html for a single day is like the following:

<td data-action="selectDay" data-day="10/26/2016" class="day active">26</td>
<td data-action="selectDay" data-day="10/27/2016" class="day today">27</td>
<td data-action="selectDay" data-day="10/28/2016" class="day">28</td>

So essentially what I'm looking for is the contents of data-day of the active day.

I used the following code and it's working for multiple clicks:

$(document).ready(function() {
        inline: true,
        format: 'DD/MM/YYYY'

    $('div').on('click', 'tr > .day',function(){
            return false
