YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — While Donald Trump did stay on message during his closely watched, pre-written address, one of his supporters is catching heat today: Rudy Giuliani, who introduced the Republican presidential nominee at this afternoon’s speech.

Giuliani, the mayor of New York City from 1994 to Dec. 31, 2001, told the audience attending Trump’s foreign policy speech in Youngstown, Ohio, that “before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack inside the United States.”

Users on social media quickly reminded him of 9/11.

The coordinated attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon by several Al-Qaeda hijackers left nearly 3,000 dead and another 6,000 injured.
