Donald Trump made an unfortunate slip-of-the-tongue while campaigning in Buffalo, New York, at his final campaign rally before Tuesday's big-prize primary.
Trump was about to deliver prepared remarks lauding New York values when he mistakenly mentioned the name of a popular convenience store chain in place of 9/11.
He told the crowd: "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 has repeatedly invoked the Sept. 11 attacks as he's campaigned across his home state.
Twitter – particularly Trump's detractors on the social media network – did not miss the opportunity to pile on the candidate for his mistake.
I am a dyslexic Mexican and English is my second language, however even I do not confuse 7/11 with 9/11. #DonaldTrump— Salma Hayek (@salmahayek) April 19, 2016
