President Donald Trump on Tuesday commemorated the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks by attending a ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the site of the United 93 crash.
“Today, all of America wraps up and joins together,” the president said in prepared remarks. “We close our arms to help you shoulder your pain and to carry your great, great sorrow. Your tears are not shed alone, for they are shared grief with an entire nation. We grieve together for every mother and father, sister and brother, son and daughter who was stolen from us at the twin towers, the Pentagon and here in this Pennsylvania field.”
