Donald Trump honors Flight 93 passengers who fought back against 9/11 hijackers

Note of recognition for 9/11 passengers' bravery

On September 11, 2001, the plane - one of four commandeered by Al-Qaeda militants - crashed into a field in the small town of Shanksville, about 130 miles (200 kilometers) northwest of Washington.

Americans looked back on 9-11 Tuesday with tears and sombre 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 USA soil. Trump isn't just incapable of doing or saying anything remotely presidential; he's incapable of ever acting like a human being, in any context, with any amount of empathy or compassion or dignity.

Ceremonies are also being held at New York City's 9/11 Memorial plaza on the World Trade Center site.

The catastrophe saw 2,996 people lose their lives and more than 6,000 injured.

Other 9/11 ceremonies happened throughout the day as Americans marked the 17th anniversary of the terror attacks. The names of the dead are being read aloud and there will be moments of silence at the time two planes hit each tower of the World Trade Center.

Trump remembered the almost 3,000 people killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and aboard Flight 93, which went down in Shanksville.

"We grieve together for every mother, father, sister and brother, son and daughter who was stolen from us at the twin towers, at the Pentagon and here in this Pennsylvania field", he continued.

Mr Trump praised the passengers' "incredible valour" and said their revolt was "the moment America fought back".

The 40 passengers and crew of the doomed plane "attacked the enemy", Trump said in a speech.

Hall, however, believes Apple will price it closer to $849 given better-than-expected demand for the current iPhone X this summer. Both the bold new color options and the potential "Xc" moniker echo Apple's lower-cost iPhone 5c handset from 2013.


Mr Trump is the third sitting president to attend the crash site, 70 miles (110km) southeast of Pittsburgh.

A total of nearly 3,000 people were killed on September 11, 2001.

Though we would have guessed that the First Lady would reach for an iconic American designer like Ralph Lauren for the occasion - as she did on the Fourth of July - Pierre also feels like a fitting choice.

"We're gathered together on these hallowed grounds to honor the memory of almost 3,000 souls who were murdered on this day 17 years ago", the president said.
