WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday marked the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks from the Pentagon, where 184 people were killed when American Airlines Flight 77 was crashed into the building.
“The horror and anguish of that dark day has been seared into our memory forever,” he said at the memorial.
Trump, a New York City native, was in Manhattan on the day of the attacks.
“Today, our entire nation grieves with you,” the president said, joined by first lady Melania Trump and adding that “our whole world changed” on that fateful day.
Vice President Mike Pence honored victims by visiting the 9/11 memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in a field and killed 40 as passengers and crew sought to thwart the terrorists.
