Trump to mark 17 years since 9/11 at Pennsylvania memorial

Note of recognition for 9/11 passengers' bravery

The American leader spoke at a ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where hijackers crashed California-bound Flight 93 into a field on 11 September, 2001.

"Now he's seen fist bumping on his way to the field in Shanksville, PA, where 40 people died after a terror attack was thwarted", Chris Riotta chimed in.

Seventeen years after the devastating 9/11 attacks, President Donald Trump heads to Pennsylvania on Tuesday to pay tribute, as his predecessors have done, to the men and women who died aboard hijacked Flight 93.

NEW YORK — Americans are commemorating 9/11 with somber tributes, volunteer projects and a new monument to victims, after a year when two attacks demonstrated the enduring threat of terrorism in the nations biggest city.

That seems to be the only way to explain his extremely minimal tweet recognizing the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

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.

Bolton To Set Out Tough U.S. Stance On International Criminal Court
In 2002, Bolton, then a State Department official, traveled to NY to ceremonially "unsign" the Rome Statute at the United Nations. He also cited a recent move by Palestinian leaders to have Israeli officials prosecuted at the ICC for human rights violations.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump will focus on remembering the "horrific day" and honoring the lives that were lost and the emergency responders who risked their lives in the aftermath.

A stark reminder came not long after last years anniversary: A truck mowed down people, killing eight, on a bike path within a few blocks of the World Trade Center on Halloween.

It features 40 wind chimes, one for each of the flight's 40 passengers and crew members who died on september 11, 2001.

The sound the chimes make will change depending on the strength and direction of the wind. It is the place where the fourth planned attack was foiled, when 40 passengers and crew members stormed the cockpit hoping to stop the hijackers. Pence is attending a ceremony at the Pentagon.

The 9/11 commemorations are by now familiar rituals, centered on reading the names of the dead.

Trump has said when talking about Muslims that "thousands of people were cheering" in Jersey City, New Jersey, situated across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan, as the towers collapsed. And there building continues.
