Campaigning in Florida on Tuesday, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton claimed that she was in New York City on 9/11, when terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center, Breitbart reports. She made her claim while discussing terrorism and the threat posed by ISIS.
“I know what happened not far from here at Pulse night club in Orlando,” she said. “I was in New York City on 9/11 as one of the two senators. I will defeat ISIS. I will protect America.”
But Clinton wasn’t in New York on 9/11, according to Politico. As a United States Senator she was in Washington D.C. at her home in Whitehaven when the first plane hit the World Trade Center. Clinton flew to New York on September 12, after making a speech on the Senate Floor in the morning.
