In Japan, we have a lot of 7-11 convenience stores. Although, 7-11 was originally American, a Japanese company bought them out years ago. Normally, when a public speaker slips up in a talk it’s probably best to try to correct yourself quickly. The speaker sadly confused 9-11 terrorist attacks with a convenience store. Apparently this politician didn’t catch himself, but he did our office a good laugh before going home from work.
Trump was about to deliver prepared remarks lauding New York values at Buffalo’s First Niagara Center Monday night when he referred to 7-Eleven.
“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,” Trump told the crowd.
