During Campaign Rally, Donald Trump Reflects on the Fateful Day of ‘7-Eleven’

Just before the New York primary, Donald Trump reminded a crowd in Buffalo that he had been a personal witness to ‘7-Eleven’

‘I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action,’ Trump said.

On Monday, a day before the New York primary, Donald Trump hoped to stir up a sense of camaraderie with the crowd in Buffalo by sharing his memories of the September 11 terrorist attacks — but he miscalculated.

“I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen, down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down,” Trump told the crowd. “And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.”

Neither Trump nor the crowd seemed to notice, at least immediately, that the candidate had spoken passionately about the popular convenience store chain rather than 9/11, but the clip received plenty of social media attention.


When Trump solemnly invoked The 7-11 Attacks, was he thinking of brown franchise owners attacked for looking Muslim? http://boingboing.net/2016/04/18/trump-solemnly-recalls-the-7-1.html …

Just last week, a top campaign aide for Trump, national field director Stuart Jolly, resigned from his position in a letter to the Republican frontrunner.  “Many experiences on this journey will never be forgotten,” Jolly wrote.
