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.
