U.S. marks 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks

Note of recognition for 9/11 passengers' bravery

"Free people are never at the mercy of evil", Trump told crowds at the memorial service on the crash site of Flight 93.

"Today we mourn their loss, share their story and we commemorate their incredible valour. we remember the moment America fought back".

Trump was also photographed giving a thumbs up as he toured the memorial to the 40 Flight 93 victims. "This field is now a monument to American defiance".

He said: "This field now now a message to the world: America will never submit to tyranny".

Before he spoke, Trump listened as the names of the 40 victims were read aloud, followed by the tolling of bells.

First lady Melania Trump chose a stylish and patriotic outfit to attend ceremonies marking the 17th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks.

Flight 93 was one of three planes hijacked by Al-Qaeda terrorists and crashed into various landmarks across the USA, including the World Trade Center in New York City, and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.

Bin Laden was killed nearly a decade later, in May 2011, during a military operation ordered by President Barack Obama.

Trump wants Obama to know he has a 'magic wand'
Obama broke with a tradition apparently only modern Republican ex-presidents follow, which is not to speak ill of your successor. Hourly earnings, which were largely stagnant during the Obama years, have increased an average 2.9 percent over the last year.

Melania's shady side-eye truly sums up how many of us feel about Trump. He also tweeted quotes from Fox News about a series of his familiar grievances, including the Russian Federation probe and the U.S. Department of Justice. Thousands slept with loved ones for the last time.

A citywide moment of silence will also be observed throughout the morning.

Trump has frequently been criticized for his behavior in relation to tragic events, including the September 11 attacks.

During a ceremony at the Pentagon's 9/11 memorial site, where the names of the fallen are etched into a series of benches, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said those who died did not do so in vain.

Pence noted that "roughly one-quarter" of Americans were born after September 11, 2001.

The bell has been rung on every anniversary since 2002, when it was presented to NY by the City of London to honor those who died.

His early Twitter messages quoted Fox News television segments that were aired the previous night, suggesting he was rewatching the programming as he prepared to depart for the anniversary celebrations.
