Trump cites 7-Eleven terrorist attacks

Do you remember the day the twin towers came crashing down on 7-Eleven?

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump does.

The Republican candidate referenced the convenience store chain when discussing the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“It’s very close to my heart because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen down at 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’s slip up came during a campaign rally Monday in Buffalo, New York.

It was one of his last stops before the state’s big primary on Tuesday.

The gaffe was part of a canned speech praising “New York values,” a term that has haunted Ted Cruz during the race.

Trump has often cited the 9/11 terrorist attacks during his campaign as a way to justify his platform.

He visited the National September 11 Memorial & Museum for the first time in early April.
