Donald Trump Accidentally Called 9/11 '7-Eleven' During A Campaign Speech

By

During a campaign speech in Buffalo, New York on Monday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said "7-Eleven" when he meant to say "9/11."

Trump said,

I watched our police and our firemen, down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down, and I saw the greatest people I've ever seen in action.

Trump went on to say the people he saw, presumably on 9/11, were the bravest people he's ever seen and real heroes.

Trump was speaking about "New York values," a phrase Republican candidate Ted Cruz used to criticize more liberal ideals.

Trump said "New York values" like those he saw on 9/11 make us all love the state of New York. Trump did not notice his mistake and continued talking about the heroes of 7-Eleven.

Trump was campaigning in New York for the state's primary vote. The primary vote is going down on Tuesday.
