Trump Pays His Respect On September 11th

Former President Trump paid tribute to the hundreds of Americans who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on American soil and lauded the brave actions of the first responders who rushed to the scene.

Melania Trump issued a rare public comment on the 22nd anniversary of the attacks, pledging to “never forget.”

The former president, a native of New York, said the memories of the worst terrorist assault in U.S. history would forever be “seared into our memories.”

President Trump honored the victims of the assault and the first responders who helped the wounded in a two-minute video message.

It was an unusually public comment from the former first lady, who has mostly remained out of the spotlight while her husband campaigns for reelection and faces various legal challenges.

This weekend, Trump was seen at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, but was conspicuously absent from public view on 9/11.

While in office, he and First Lady Melania Trump hosted a memorial service at the White House and traveled to the Pentagon, Ground Zero, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, to pay their respects at the respective memorials.

Some of the 9/11 families have spoken out against the former president for holding the LIV golf event, which the Saudi government funds.

Meanwhile, Ron and Casey DeSantis attended Monday’s commemorations of the 22nd anniversary of the September 11th attacks at the World Trade Center with other victims’ loved ones.

Although he was the only Republican presidential candidate to show up, DeSantis was at the World Trade Center at the same time as Vice President Kamala Harris, who was there to stand in for President Joe Biden, who is spending the anniversary thousands of miles away in Alaska.

On September 11, the president usually visits one of the three sites where the aircraft crashed, commemorating the 2,977 people who died there.

Biden will be 4,362 miles away from the site of the attacks, at a military facility, on his way back to the United States following his trips to India and Vietnam.
