It's very close to my heart, because I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen, down on 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. I saw the bravest people I've ever seen, including the construction workers, including every person down there, that's what "New York values" about.
That's really great and heart-warming, Donald. Only that's a convenience store, not a terrorist attack. Cool that you think the employees are so brave, though. Slurpees and hot dogs can be dangerous. You neglected to mention that Bush did 7-11, too. #neverforget
And, as ever, Twitter had something to say about.
It's pretty easy to understand how Donald Trump mixed up 9/11 with 7/11 once you realize that he sees all people running them as terrorists.— Warren Holstein (@WarrenHolstein) April 19, 2016
BREAKING: Trump refers to 9/11 as 7/11, fans cheer, say they're "fed up with the establishment telling us what dates things happened on"— Rex Huppke (@RexHuppke) April 19, 2016
Trump says in speech not to forget the attacks of "7/11." Or the great coffee at WaWa.— Jake Vig (@Jake_Vig) April 19, 2016
Trump talked down 9/11 to 7/11. He knows how to make a deal!— Chris Regan (@ChrisRRegan) April 19, 2016
In fairness to Trump, a 7-11 can be genuinely tragic https://t.co/eyCmxKSVbD— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) April 19, 2016
Trump just referred to 9-11 as 7-11. I bet former NY mayor Rudy Tuesday's is pissed.— Josh Henderson (@Henderson1983) April 19, 2016

How many of Trump's supporters do you think are going to argue on Twitter today that the attacks actually did happen on 7/11?— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) April 19, 2016
