President Trump Honored 9/11 Victims: American President, Donald J. Trump has led the national moment of silence on the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Monday, the first commemoration for a New York native who has described the destruction of the Twin Towers as a defining event in his political life.
Trump addressed at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial saying, “On that day, not only did the world change but we all changed. Our eyes were opened to the depths of the evil we face but in that hour of darkness we also came together with renewed purpose. Our differences never looked so small. Our common bonds never felt so strong.”

Trump observed a moment of silence on the White House South Lawn to mark the moment the first plane hit the World Trade Center. Former President Barack Obama held the same ceremonies while in office.
“When Americans are in need. Americans pull together and we are one country,” Trump said, speaking of both the catastrophic hurricanes and America after 9/11. “Our values will endure, our people will thrive, our nation will prevail and the memory of our loved ones will never, ever die,” he said.
Trump told the reporters that he would visit Florida soon. “These are storms of catastrophic severity, and we’re marshaling the full resources of the federal government to help our fellow Americans in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, and all of those wonderful places and states in harm’s way,” Mr. Trump told the crowd.
