"Yes, you helped to get benefits for the people that were injured that day," the former New York City mayor said to an approving crowd. "But I heard her say one day she was there that day. I was there that day. I don’t remember seeing Hillary Clinton there."
Clinton, a senator representing New York at the time, was in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 11, 2001, the day terrorists attacked New York City and the Pentagon.
She traveled to New York City a day later and visited the site of the attacks on the Twin Towers.
Social media users quickly pointed out photos from Sept. 12, 2001, showing Giuliani walking next to Clinton.

Terrorists killed 2,996 people and wounded more than 6,000 others during four coordinated attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Giuliani on Wednesday accused Clinton of lying about being in New York after the attacks.
“That was like when she said she had to run through gunfire,” he said in Ocala, Fla. “That turned out to be, what do we call it? A lie.
“But don’t tell me you subscribe to the notion that all of us who were on September 11 and we’re lucky to be alive and have lost so many friends,” added Giuliani.
“I lost so many friends on September 11. I think about it every day. Don’t tell me you belong to our very, very tight group of ‘never forget.’ Don’t tell me that.”
Giuliani on Monday claimed Clinton admitted to multiple crimes during the second presidential debate.
Giuliani previously praised Clinton during the Democratic National Convention in July for helping aid 9/11 victims and their families after the massacre.
“Hillary Clinton [was] like Sen. [Chuck] Schumer [D-N.Y.], the entire United States Senate and House of Representatives that I know was enormously supportive and enormously helpful,” he said in Philadelphia.
“But she was a part of it, and she has a right to tell people that she worked hard on behalf of the 9/11 families [as] she did. That is accurate and I have no objection to that.”
