Donald Trump Branded 'Insensitive' After Double First Pump Ahead Of 9/11 Memorial

U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump talk as they walk from the Marine One helicopter to Air Force One at John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport prior to departing Johnstown, Pennsylvania, U.S., September 11, 2018.

"We honor their sacrifice by pledging to never flinch in the face of evil and to do whatever it takes to keep America safe", Trump said.

"As commander-in-chief, I will always do everything in my power to prevent terrorists from striking American soil", the president added, while also paying tribute to the almost 7,000 United States service members who have been killed "facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism". President Trump is expected to make remarks at the vigil.

Americans looked back on 9/11 Tuesday with tears and somber tributes as President Donald Trump hailed "the moment when America fought back" on one of the hijacked planes used as weapons in the deadliest terror attack on US soil. The passengers chose to take matters into their own hands.

He said the "brave patriots turned the tide on our nation's enemies and joined the immortal ranks of American heroes".

He said the site marks the "moment when America fought back", and said the September 11 anniversary recalls the day "a band of fearless patriots turned the tide on our nation's enemies and joined the immortal ranks of American heroes".

"This is my holy place", she said before the hours-long reading of the names of her husband, Joel Miller, and the almost 3,000 others killed when hijacked jets slammed into the towers, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001.

The terror attacks were the deadliest in the USA history, killing 2,996 people.

"17 years ago, Americans went to bed with no thought the next day their world would change forever", tweeted a nearby NYPD precinct.

Of those he said 7,000 have "died facing down the menace of radical Islamic terrorism".

Melania's shady side-eye truly sums up how many of us feel about Trump.

In a statement ahead of Trump's Tuesday speech, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president's focus for the day was "remembering the lives that were lost, and certainly honouring the individuals who were not only lost that day, but also put their lives on the line to help in that process".
