Donald Trump Accidentally Refers to 9/11 as 7-Eleven at New York Rally

Donald Trump suffered a blunder at his Buffalo, New York rally on Monday.

In a video, obtained by CNN, the GOP front-runner accidentally refers to 9/11 as the convenience store 7-Eleven.

"I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart," Trump started. "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."

It's unclear if the businessman didn't realize his mistake or if he simply chose to power through, but he did not correct himself.



The mix-up comes on the eve of New York's primary, the next major contest in the candidates' race for the white house. Despite Monday night's incident, Trump is expected to do well, and his predicted outcome is one even opponent Ted Cruz can't deny.

However, Cruz still doesn't think any winnings the real estate mogul takes from the Empire State will be enough to win the Republican Party candidacy.

"New York is Trump's home state. He's going to do well," Cruz told Jimmy Fallon during a recent appearance on the Tonight Show. "Regardless of what happens here, we are headed to a contested convention in Cleveland. None of us would have gotten a majority [by then] and then it becomes a battle."
