In more Donald Trump news, the unfortunate front runner for the Republican party made a pretty serious error in New York City, last night: He referred to the 9/11 attacks as “7/11.”
That’s right, the man who who has built his entire campaign around “Making America Great Again” referenced the gas station/convenience store when he meant to refer to the horrific and terrorist attack that took the lives of thousands of innocent people on September 11, 2001.
His exact words were:
“I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart. Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”
Even more telling about the faux pas? He didn’t correct himself.
Trump often references the attacks of September 11 when he talked about making “America Great Again,” with claims that the attacks define a “New York value.”
With today being election day in New York, many analyst project Trump to win much of the delegates in today’s primaries.
