  • President Trump to Mark 17th Anniversary of 9/11 Terror Attacks in Shanksville

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump commemorated the tragic event in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where a memorial was erected in memory of the fearless men and women who attempted to take control of the hijacked plane.

Commemorating the 17th anniversary of the attacks that struck the World Trade Center in NY and the Pentagon in Washington, Trump said the nation shared the grief of the family members whose loved ones were lost that day. He and the first lady led a moment of silence at the White House accompanied by aides and administration officials marking the time that hijackers flew the first of two planes into the World Trade Centre's Twin Towers.

President Trump delivered remarks at the site where United Airlines Flight 93, one of the planes hijacked by terrorists, crashed, killing the 40 passengers and crew on board.

This year, a new memorial stands in honor of the 40 passengers who were aboard Flight 93 when it crashed into a field in Shanksville.

Thousands of people will gather in New York City, Washington, DC and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. "Let's not trivialize them".

Trump tweets rejection of Puerto Rico’s death toll from Hurricane Maria
As Hurricane Florence bears down on the mid-Atlantic, the President boldly declares that the country is "ready for it". The historical relationship between Puerto Rico and Washington is unfair and unAmerican.

He was as soon as joined by his critical other, first lady Melania Trump, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and feeble Gov. Mark Schweiker, who was as soon as the impart's lieutenant governor on 11th of September.

"Last year, President Trump signed the largest increase in our national defense in a generation", Pence said.

In all, almost 3,000 people were killed in the attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. "America will never, ever submit to tyranny".

The living family members of those who fought back were in attendance and took turns at a microphone, reading the names of the their deceased loved ones during the bell-ringing remembrance ceremony.

Without fail, the president's words were immediately compared to those of his predecessor, Barack Obama, who was objectively more eloquent with his 280 characters on the social media platform.

Still, the Swedish election underscored a broader shift to the right in one of Europe's most socially progressive nations. While this performance was much better than predicted in pre-election polls, it is the party's poorest result since 1908.

"This self-discipline is now a monument to American defiance".

"It's a nice way to remember without everyone sitting around being depressed", she said.

The 9/11 commemoration has become an annual event for presidents since President George W. Bush grabbed a bullhorn to speak to workers in the rubble of the destroyed World Trade Center.

The 40 passengers and crew members on board attempted to regain control of the jet after speaking to relatives on the phone and learning the hijacking was part of a larger plot targeting the World Trade Center in NY.
