President Trump on 9/11: ‘America cannot be intimidated’
President Donald Trump on Monday celebrated the sixteenth commemoration of the Sept. 11 assaults, driving a snapshot of quiet at the White House to check the minute the principal plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York.
The president and first woman Melania Trump remained on the White House’s South Lawn in the midst of a group that incorporated Trump’s senior little girl, Ivanka, and his child in-law Jared Kushner.
Trump talked at a commemoration function at the Pentagon later Monday morning, respecting the almost 3,000 casualties of the assaults and their families.
“Today, our entire nation grieves with you,” he said, reflecting on “the horror and anguish of that dark day” and praising the country’s perseverance and unity following the attacks.

His deliberate comments on Monday in any case, Trump has a past filled with making unfeeling and false remarks about the Sept. 11 disaster.
The 2001 psychological militant assaults were the subject of one of Trump’s most appalling lies amid his presidential battle. In November 2015, he asserted, without prove, that “thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey had praised the news of the assaults.
“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,” Trump said at a campaign rally. “Thousands of people were cheering.”
I predicted the 9/11 attack on America in my book “The America We Deserve” and the collapse of Iraq in @TimeToGetTough.
