Twitter Eviscerates Trump For Extremely Minimal '17 Years' 9/11 Tweet

Trump praised the valor of the 40 passengers and crew members of Flight 93 for resisting the terrorists in control of the hijacked plane, which led to the crash in a Pennsylvania field.

Nearly 3,000 people died in 2001 when planes were crashed into New York's Twin Towers, the Pentagon in Washington and an open field in Pennsylvania.

Victims' relatives said prayers for their country, pleaded for national unity and pressed officials not to use the 2001 terror attacks as a political tool in a polarized nation.

Unsurprisingly, this ability to display basic levels of human empathy and tact doesn't apply to our president, who was photographed fist bumping while walking to the the Flight 93 September 11 Memorial Service.

Commemorations also took place in NY and Washington to mark the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by al Qaeda, in which almost 3,000 people were killed.

Thousands of 9/11 victims relatives, survivors, rescuers and others are expected at Tuesdays anniversary ceremony at the World Trade Center, while President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will head to the two other places where hijacked planes crashed on September 11, 2001, in the deadliest terror attack on American soil.

The 93-foot-tall tower is part of the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville.

Thousands of 9/11 victims' relatives, survivors, rescuers and others who gathered on a misty Tuesday morning at the memorial plaza where the World Trade Center's twin towers once stood.

"Certainly the focus will be on remembering that horrific day and remembering the lives that were lost, and certainly honoring the individuals who were not only lost that day, but also put their lives of the line to help in that process", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

A stark reminder came not long after last year's anniversary: A truck mowed down people, killing eight, on a bike path within a few blocks of the World Trade Center on Halloween.

"WTC Cortlandt is more than a new subway station.it is symbolic of New Yorkers' resolve", said Joe Lhota, head of the city's Metropolitan Transportation Authority. It will soon have 40 chimes for the 40 passengers and crew members aboard Flight 93 who died on September 11th, 2001.

At the Pentagon, where 184 people died when American Airlines Flight 77 struck the building, Vice President Pence said, "A growing number of Americans have no living memory of what happened here".
