Addressing the crowd, Trump said: 'We are gathered to honor the memory of almost 3000 souls who were murdered on this day almost 17 years ago. A writer for the New York Times once wrote of its importance musing that it "succeeds because it offers no narrative, no interpretation, no mediation".

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump made the false claim thousands of Muslims in New Jersey were cheering the attacks after they heard the news.

In Shanksville, Trump spoke of the passengers who boarded the United Airways eight a.m. flight from Newark, Original Jersey, waiting for to glean off in San Francisco.

This memorial is now a message to the world: "America will never, ever submit to tyranny", the president said. "When the World Trade Center came down, I saw something that no place on Earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely", he said.
