Donald Trump mixed up his numbers on Monday, accidentally referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as taking place on 7/11. 

This misspeak, which took place at a campaign event in Buffalo, was captured in a Vine shared by BuzzFeed's Brandon Wall: 

Trump was campaigning ahead of Tuesday's New York primary about "New York values," a term rival Ted Cruz had used derisively earlier this year. 

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