SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) President Donald Trump is marking 17 years since the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil by visiting the Pennsylvania field that became a Sept. 11 memorial.

Trump and his wife, Melania, arrived in Shanksville on Tuesday for the somber remembrance. It's where a California-bound commercial airliner crashed on Sept. 11, 2001, after the 40 passengers and crew members learned what was happening and attempted to regain control of the aircraft. Everyone on board was killed.

If he went to New York he would be surrounded by people who suffer from the Stockholm Syndrome. They have come to identify and sympathize with the Muslim terrorists and even loathe the victims. New York City is a bizarre place.

That’s the perfect place to appear.

I’m glad he made the effort to go there today, but he seems to have an uncanny ability to make the right move time after time...

I am certain that we will hear on the evening news how badly the President screwed up his speech.

A lot of terrible things have been and will be said about the President today. I remember Trump making it his top priority to stop Islamic terrorists from crossing our borders out of the gate on day one, and being blocked and attacked at every turn by the Deep State, Judicial activist judges, the media, the billionaire oligarcs, the Dems, (should be one word we can use for all of that).

Building the wall and vetting everyone that comes from overseas is all I want to see Trump doing today for 9-11. I could give a damn about a politician wearing sack clothes and ashes and crying crocodile tears for the cameras.

Flight 93 is a good example of traditional American Exceptionalism.

Not to take away from the real story, but what a pleasure it is to see our men in uniform salute a real Commander-in-Chief!

Watching... and comparing...
Trump- engaged, emotive, sincere
Pence- wooden, unconnected, sleepy

This is why they would choose Pence over Trump through impeachment.

Shanksville is a little over an hour away from me. We went out there three different times after the attack. Lots and lots of homemade tributes from all over the world. Little wooden angel signs made by school kids. A 10 foot tall fence with fireman's hats from all over the states hanging on it. Huge rusting mining machines still in the fields nearby. A very rural area with tiny churches and one lane farm roads. One could not approach the actual crash site as it had a 8 foot chain link fence around it. No one would go down there anyway out of respect. Some locals set up a little shed for info to help the visitors. I took lots of pics I'm glad I did. Some folks made their own road signs pointing the way to the site. I believe all that is gone now. I don't think I want to go to the new and "improved" site.

My son was living in NYC at the time. The 5 hour wait for the phone call was grueling.

A few days later, he said he looked down the street and the Trade Center was gone and it broke his heart.

To this day, he reacts to a plane overhead.

Thank you, President Trump, for not forgetting.

Being from Massachusetts, we already had a Patriots Day commemorating April 19, 1775. Scores of kin responded to the call that day of The Shot Heard ‘Round The World.

So I took exception to 9-11 also being called Patriot day. Until I remembered the passengers of Flight 93 were the modern day incarnation of the spirit of April 19th. They were true Patriots all. May the Rest In Peace.

Conciliatory speeches are weakness. Trump is weak. He does not really strike back at attackers. They pay no penalty. Politically he lets his enemies in print get away with way too much. They really deserve to pay a price for their obvious disloyalty in print. He needs to flex some muscle and hurl the Obama “sleepers” into the darkness. They are deep insiders They erode his strength every day.
If allowed they will prevent and destroy his legacy.

9/11 United America as Americans. Ever since the Left has been trying to divide us with their diversity crap and hate politics etc. Trump is trying to unite us again as we should be, but the Left and the media hate America and are fighting him tooth and nail.
